The notes for Volumes Three and Four tell where legends appear and reappear, where versions differ and where they contradict one another. When legends have been the subject of learned interpretation or debate, Ginzberg provides guidance to the commentaries and disputants; when the legends are part of a larger controversy, he provides context.
