Chapter Summary

The title 'Hekhalot Zutarti' is derived from the well-known responsum on the story of the four who entered pardes by Rav Hai Gaon b. Sherira, who refers to two allegedly Tannaitic 'mishnayot', called Hekhalot Rabbati and Hekhalot Zutarti. According to Schäfer, who characterizes HekhZ as 'of all the analyzed macroforms . . . the least homogenous', it basically consists of the material in Schäfer's Synopse § 335-426, excluding 375-406 which are found only in ms. New York and contain an assortment of materials derived from other macroforms. The version of HekhZ that follows includes all of the material included by both Schäfer and Elior (§ 335-374 and 407-419), plus § 375 (included by Elior but not by Schäfer) and the Akiva 'postscript' (422- 424). § 347 (ms. Munich 40 only), where a copyist has mistakenly repeated the first words of § 337, is disregarded.
