Tractate Bava Basra I: Commentary and Study Guide
Tractate Bava Basra I: Commentary and Study Guide
by Nachman Cohen / Varda Books

The third of the three Talmudic tractates of the order Neziḳin, dealing with man's responsibilities and rights as the owner of property, of a house or field. The tractate is divided into ten chapters, the contents of which may be described as follows: (1) Regulations relating to property held by more than one owner (ch. i.); (2) responsibilities of an owner of property with regard to that of his neighbor (ch. ii.); (3) established rights of ownership and rights connected with property (ch. iii.); (4) laws referring to the acquisition of property by purchase (ch. iv.-vii.); (5) laws of inheritance (ch. viii.-ix.); (6) laws concerning documents (ch. x.).

Despite its seemingly prosaic topics, the Tractate is full of interesting stuff. Louis Ginzberg's "Legends of the Jews" for example, cites it 194 times.
