Catalogue Note

Samuel Eliezer ben Judah ha-Levi (1555–1631) is better known by his acronym Maharsha. He adopted the surname, Edels, in honor of his mother-in-law, a wealthy woman who supported him and his numerous disciples for a period of 20 years. His commentary on the Talmud is one of the classical works of talmudic literature included in nearly every printed edition of the Talmud. His book gained such wide currency that an understanding of the Maharsha's comments came to be regarded for many generations as a necessary qualification for any aspiring talmudic scholar. Although censuring "those people who in the present generation give all their time to the study of Kabbalah," he nonetheless quotes extensively from kabbalistic literature. The present volume also includes novellae of Baruch of Mainz (f.14v.)
