Detail Description

R. Samson ben Isaac of Chinon, French Talmudist; lived at Chinon between 1260 and 1330. In Talmudic literature he is generally called after his native place, Chinon (Hebr. ), and sometimes by the abbreviation MaHaRShaḲ. He was a contemporary of R. Perez Kohen Gerondi, who, as reported by R. Isaac ben Sheshet, declared R. Samson to be the greatest rabbinical authority of his time (Responsa, No. 157).

Samson was the author of the following works: (1) "Sefer Keritut" (Constantinople, 1515), a methodology of the Talmud divided into five parts: (a) "Bet Middot," treating of the thirteen rules of R. Ishmael; (b) "Bet ha-Miḳdash," on the rules for deductions by analogy and conclusions a fortiori; (c) "Netibot 'Olam," containing explanations of the thirty-two rules of R. Eliezer ben Jose ha-Gelili; (d) "Yemot 'Olam," giving the names of the Tannaim and Amoraim, and setting forth a method for deciding between the contrary opinions of two doctors; (e) "Leshon Limmudim," explanations of certain halakic decisions. The "Sefer Keritut," owing to its easy style and its author's great authority, became a classic. (2) "Ḳonṭres," a commentary on the Talmudic treatises 'Erubin and 'Abodah Zarah; mentioned in the "Sefer Keritut." (3) "Bi'ur ha-Geṭ" (Vienna MS. No. 48), on the laws concerning divorce.

R. Samson wrote also responsa, several of which are quoted by R. Joseph Colon (Responsa, No. 187) and R. Solomon ben Adret (Responsa, iii., No. 1; iv., No. 152). According to Gross, R. Samson was the author of the supercommentary on Ibn Ezra's commentary on the Pentateuch found by Judah Mosconi at Perpignan between 1363 and 1375 (Halberstam MS.). As regards the word (= "of Marseilles"), which appears in the manuscript after the name R. Samson of Chinon, Gross believes that R. Samson settled at Marseilles after the banishment of the Jews from France.
