This volume offers the first translation ever made of Book Thirteen of The Code of Maimonides. Compiled in the latter part of the twelfth century, this monumental work of Maimonides is the most authoritative and complete restatement of Jewish Law after the close of the Talmud. It represents the culmination of over fifteen centuries of uninterrupted legal development among a people for whom the study of law not only served intensely practical purposes but was also a mode of worship. The present book consists of the following five Treatises:
The Laws of Hiring
The Laws of Borrowing and Depositing
The Laws of Creditor and Debtor The Laws of Pleading
The Laws of Inheritance
THE BOOK OF CIVIL LAWS, Volume II of the Yale Judaica Series, initiates the plan of including in the Series a translation of the fourteen volumes of The Code of Maimonides together with a fifteenth volume which will be a critical appraisal of the Code in its entirety.
