Description

Traces the sources of Maimonides' rulings, and attempts to resolve apparent contradictions between the Mishneh Torah and the Talmud.

Rabbi Abraham became aware of the Kesef Mishneh after he had already commenced his own commentary; from that point on he took care not to duplicate material contained in Caro's work.
