Marton teaches Talmud and the academic study of Rabbinic literature at Leo Baeck College. He read Philosophy with Classics and Hebrew at ELTE University (Budapest) and received his MA with a thesis on ‘Franz Rosenzweig’s political theology’. In pursuit of the historical foundations of Rosenzweig’s speculative system and following his interest in ancient history and languages, Marton subsequently studied Second Temple Judaism and Early Christianity in Oxford and received his MPhil with a thesis testing the Tosefta Atiqta theory entitled ‘Concluding sections of Mishnah tractates moulded from the Tosefta’. He studied Rabbinics in Nottingham and spent a year at the Hebrew University and the Conservative Yeshiva in Jerusalem before starting his PhD in Manchester funded by the ESRC, the Graduate School and the Gerda Henkel Stiftung. Marton’s doctoral project focuses on the development of scientific language in Roman and Rabbinic law. He reads extensively in linguistics, metaphor theory and philosophy which generate a fresh comparative reading of the Latin and Hebrew/Aramaic legal sources pertaining to the legal domain of obligations and damages. Marton runs the Ancient Law and the Phenomenology reading groups in Manchester, and works as Administrator of the Manchester Centre for Jewish Studies. His research interests are philosophy, legal theory, Talmud, Rabbinics and Roman law.
