Abstract

The article by Pinchas Roth describes a religiouslegal (halakhic) controversy that erupted within the Jewish community of 14th-century Avignon. The controversy concerned the question of whether sturgeon is a kosher fish permitted for Jewish consumption, but the roots of the controversy lie in larger issues of religious philosophy. The article is based upon a description of the controversy penned by one of its participants, Astrug Moses d'Milhau. His description found in the National Library of Israel, ms. 28˚2033 appears here as an appendix to the article.
