About this Item

(FT) Hardcover, 8vo, 68 [i. E. 136] pages, 25 cm. In Hebrew. SUBJECT(S) : Responsa -- 1040-1600. Nissim (? 1310 ? 1375) , was "one of the most important Spanish talmudists. Nissim's family originated in Cordova and settled first in Gerona, where he is thought to have been born, and then in Barcelona, which became his permanent place of residence. Few biographical details are known of him. He never held any official rabbinical post, even though in fact he fulfilled all the functions of a rabbi and dayyan in his community. Furthermore, many takkanot enacted in Spain originated with him, and his reputation as an authoritative posek was such that he received queries from as far as Erez Israel and Syria. He is also known to have served as a physician in the royal palace. Because of a calumny, the date and causes of which are not certain, he was imprisoned for some time. It is also known that in 1336 he wrote a Sefer Torah for his own use, which became well known and served as a model. This Sefer Torah was moved from place to place until it reached Tiberias, where it was preserved until recently. Nissim's renown rests chiefly on his halakhic works" (Feldman in EJ 2007) . OCLC lists 8 copies worldwide. Repair to binding. Wear to spine and binding. Bumped corners and edges. Good condition. (Spec-8-5) SPEC1, MX3, HEB2, rab7, sef3. Bookseller Inventory # 25470
