Chapter Summary

This bibliography presents a list of archival and manuscript sources, printed primary sources and secondary sources relevant to the discussion of the Pinkas of the Metz Beit Din. The Pinkas of the Metz Beit Din offers an exceptional opportunity to investigate the interrelationship between law and society and reviews the interplay between French law and Jewish law. The book Protocols of Justice: The Pinkas of the Metz Rabbinic Court 1771-1789 demonstrates the value that rabbinic court records hold out for contemporary historical scholarship and deals with the legal methodology and rabbinic jurisprudence of Rabbi Yaʾir Hayyim Bacharach of seventeenth-century Worms, and adaptive capacity of Jewish religious and legal traditions.

Keywords: French law; Jewish law; Jewish religious tradition; Metz Beit Din; Pinkas; rabbinic jurisprudence
