About this Item

First edition. Original boards.8vo, 94 pages ; 24 cm. In Hebrew. Title translates to "The Rashba s Commentary on Tractate Bava Kama, Part II. " Adret (1235-1310) was a Spanish rabbi. "As a rabbinical authority his fame was such that he was designated as El Rab d'Espaņa ( The Rabbi of Spain ) . A manuscript purporting to be a certificate of indebtedness, dated 1262, in favor of a certain Solomon Adret, Jew of Barcelona, and a passport for the same Adret, dated 1269, are still extant (Jacobs, Sources, pp. 16, 43, No. 130) . Nahmanides and Jonah of Gerona were his teachers. He was a master in the study of the Talmud, and was not opposed to the Cabala. Adret was very active as a rabbi and as an author. Under his auspices and through his recommendation, part of the commentary on the Mishnah by Maimonides was translated from the Arabic into Hebrew. His Talmudic lectures were attended by throngs of disciples, many of whom came from distant places. Questions in great number, dealing with ritual, with the most varied topics of the Halakah, and with religious philosophy, were addressed to him from Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, Germany, and even from Asia Minor. His responsa show evidence of wide reading, keen intelligence, and systematic thought. They also afford a clear insight into the communal life of the time, portraying Adret's contemporaries, and are of value for the study not only of rabbinical procedure but also of the intellectual development of the age in which he lived" (Kayserling in EJ, 1905) .
