Paragraph 1    German Title: 1. Theil, enthaltend Aboth di R. Nathan in einer von der gedruckten abweichenden Recension, Seder Tannain w'Ammoraim und Varianten zu Pirke Aboth. Aus Handschriften der... Staatsbibliothek zu Muenchen, herausgegeben und erlaeutert von Salomon Taussig...
   Printed from a manuscript in the Munich State Library with notes by Salomon Taussig. Avot de-Rabbi Natan (The Fathers according to Rabbi Nathan), one of the so-called extra-canonical minor tractates of the Talmud, generally printed at the end of the fourth division Nezikin, of the Babylonian Talmud. Avot de-Rabbi Nathan is clearly a commentary, that is, a kind of Talmud on treatise Avot. To be precise, in its 41 chapters, Avot de-Rabbi Nathan is a commentary on an early form of the Mishnah Avot, before that treatise was finally edited by R. Judah ha-Nasi and his successors. It is even possible that Avot de-Rabbi Nathan is so called, because it was organized as a commentary on a recension of Avot prepared by the Babylonian R. Nathan who was an older contemporary of R. Judah ha-Nasi. The Avot underlying Avot de-Rabbi Nathan, for example, preserves the original order of the statements from the Men of the Great Assembly down through the leading disciples of Rabbi Johanan b. Zakkai (in existing Avot editions that order has been interrupted by interpolations which constitute the block of sayings between 1:16 through 2:7); the original form of certain ancient sayings is still to be discerned in Avot de-Rabbi Nathan (for example, compare Avot 1:5 as it reads in the Mishnah, with Avot de-Rabbi Nathan, chapter 7); on occasion the reading in Avot de-Rabbi Nathan makes intelligible a difficulty in the received Avot text (compare, for example, the statement attributed to R. Eliezer in Avot 2:10 with the Avot de-Rabbi Nathan reading in chapter 15).
