Isaac of Dampierre was one of the central figures in the medieval Tosafist movement. Yet, although his name appears in almost every Tosafot passage, the contours of his personality and life have remained obscure. The recently-completed critical edition of his responsa, edited by Rami Reiner and Pinchas Roth, allows new insights into those hidden dimensions of Isaac's work. This lecture will explore Isaac of Dampierre's social network. Who sent queries to Isaac, and where did they live? Were they his direct disciples, or students of his uncle Rabenu Tam, or did they have no prior connection? What role did women play in this correspondence?
