Selected responsa of Rabbi Meir of Rothenburg (ca. 1200-1293), which deal with pressing legal issues of his time, are translated and examined. His decisions are evaluated in their historical context. The study delineates the framework of the argumentation in these advisory opinions and makes the complicated structure of the texts accessible. Comparisons with the legal situation of the surrounding culture show differences and similarities and offer insights into everyday Jewish life.
