Description
   Novellae on tractate Gittin by R. Solomon b. Abraham ibn Aderet (c. 1235–c. 1310), Spanish rabbi and one of the foremost Jewish scholars of his time, whose influence has remained to this day. The Rashba belonged to a well-to-do family of Barcelona where he lived all his life. His principal teacher was R. Jonah b. Abraham Gerondi and Rashba always refers to him as "my teacher." He also studied under Nahmanides, being considered one of his outstanding students and principal exponent of his "school" in the interpretation of the Talmud.

The Rashba headed a yeshivah to which students flocked, even from Germany and other countries. Among his distinguished students were: R. Yom Tov b. Abraham of Seville, R. Shem Tov ibn Gaon, and R. Bahya b. Asher. According to the Rashba , his academy housed valuable manuscripts of the Talmud brought from the Babylonian academies or which had been checked in the academies of Kairouan. It appears that he composed his famous novellae to the Talmud in connection with his lectures to his students. His novellae to 17 tractates of the Talmud have been published: Berakhot (Venice, 1523); Shabbat (Constantinople, 1720); Eruvin (Warsaw, 1895); Bezah (Lemberg, 1847); Rosh Ha-Shanah (in part, Constantinople, 1720, and in a complete, critical edition, 1961); Megillah (Constantinople, 1720; complete edition, 1956); Yevamot (Constantinople, 1720); Gittin (Venice, 1523); Kiddushin (Constantinople, 1717); Nedarim (ibid., 1720); Bava Kamma (ibid., 1720); Bava Mezia (in part, Jerusalem, 1931); Bava Batra (ibid., 1957); Shevu'ot (Salonika, 1729, and in full, Jerusalem, 1965); Avodah Zarah (in part in Jerusalem, 1966); Hullin (Venice, 1523); Niddah (Altona, 1797 and a complete edition, Jerusalem, 1938).
