This chapter examines current views concerning the alleged editing of the rabbinic texts of late antiquity. It highlights the author's 1986 article concerning the editing of rabbinic texts and discusses the possibilities of manuscript variations and variant readings of certain texts in different manuscripts. It suggests that there is no evidence of any significant recensional variation in any of the classic works of midrash, neither those included in the corpus of midrash halakhah nor those included in the corpus of midrash aggadah.

Keywords:   rabbinic texts, editing, manuscript variations, variant reading, recensional variation, midrash halakhah, midrash aggadah
