Detail Description

An important collection of fifty-nine responsa from later prominent halakhic authorities. The title page describes them and the contents as the responsa of the well-known geonim, men of repute, who are “in the land of the living” (Isaiah 38:11, Psalms 142:6, Job 28:13) the gaon Tosefot Yom Tov [R. Yom Tov Lippman Heller], Bayit Hadash (R. Joel Sirkes (Bach)), and his son-in-law the Turei Zahav (David ben Samuel ha-Levi), Meginei Shelomo (R. Joshua Hoeschel ben Joseph, of Cracow), R. Heschel, and many other geonim. Me-She’elot u-Teshuvot ha-Geonim Batrai was brought to press by R. Abraham ben Aaron Aa’ish. The title page is in two parts, the upper the text describing the book, and below publication information including text in Germand and the approval of the censor, Carolus Fischer. There are approbations from R. Eliezer Falkish, R. Samuel ben Ezekiel Segal Landau, and R. David Deutsch, a list of those helped finance publication, and the responsa. At the end of the book is a discourse from R. David Deutsch.
