Summary
Rather than being an isolated, primitive body of knowledge, the Jewish calendar tradition of 364 days constituted an integral part of the astronomical science of the ancient world. The calendar is studied here both from within - analysing its textual manifestations - and from without - via a comparison with Mesopotamian astronomy
