This chapter examines Canpanton's concept of the art of Talmud in more remote instances of its emergence, both traditional and academic, by studying an example of the Talmud of late antiquity seen in Canpanton's conceptual perspective. Canpanton's turn from the Talmud as an object of either tradition or its history to Talmud as a rational art of its own opens a view on the Talmud as event. Canpanton makes thinking of Talmud in terms of an event possible.

Keywords: Talmud; event; Rabbi Izhak Canpanton; dynamic thinking; sophistic thinking; rational art
