  • Sabine Baring-Gould was born in the parish of St Sidwell, Exeter. The eldest son of Edward Baring-Gould and his first wife, Sophia Charlotte (née Bond), he was named after a great-uncle, the Arctic explorer Sir Edward Sabine. Because the family spent much of his childhood travelling round Europe, most of his education was by private tutors. He only spent about two years in formal schooling, first at King's College School in London (then located in Somerset House) and then, for a few months, at Warwick Grammar School (now Warwick School). Here his time was ended by a bronchial disease of the kind that was to plague him throughout his long life. His father considered his ill-health as a good reason for another European tour.

“Legends of Old Testament Characters, from the Talmud and Other Sources” is a book by Sabine Baring-Gould, an English scholar, antiquarian, and prolific author of the 19th century. In this work, Baring-Gould explores the rich tapestry of legends and folklore surrounding characters from the Old Testament, drawing from a variety of sources including the Talmud, Midrash, apocryphal texts, and medieval Jewish commentaries.

The book provides retellings and interpretations of stories about figures such as Adam and Eve, Abraham and Sarah, Moses, David, Solomon, and others. Baring-Gould’s goal is to illuminate the depth and breadth of Jewish tradition surrounding these biblical characters, highlighting the cultural, religious, and moral significance of their tales.

Baring-Gould’s work reflects his deep interest in comparative religion, folklore, and mythology. He presents these legends not only as historical narratives but also as reflections of universal human themes and archetypes. Through his retellings and commentary, readers gain insights into the ways in which ancient Jewish traditions have shaped perceptions of the Old Testament figures and their relevance to subsequent generations.

“Legends of Old Testament Characters, from the Talmud and Other Sources” serves as both an introduction to Jewish folklore and a testament to the enduring power of biblical stories to inspire imagination and moral reflection across cultures and centuries.
