This article charts the status, notion, and development of Torah and Jewish law (“halakhah”) throughout the Hellenistic period, both in the Land of Israel and in the Jewish Diaspora, looking for legal concern as well as evidence for the practice of the law. It argues that legal concern did not only arise after the Maccabean period, although it became more detailed from the end of the second century BCE.
