Period: Amoraim — 4th–5th Century

Ravina I was a  Babylonian Talmudist and rabbi of the Fifth and Sixth Generation of the Amora era. He studied under Rava (Abba bar Joseph bar Ḥama) and was later associated with Ashi at the Mata Meḥasya academy (BM. 86a) with whom he began the process of compiling the Talmud; an undertaking which was taken up by, among others, his nephew Ravina II who completed the editing of the Gemara of the Babylonian Talmud.
Ravina I's halakhic rulings are quoted many times in the Babylonian Talmud, often in disagreement with Ashi.
Ravina I died in 421 CE.
