The whole 3 vols.study "Seride Teshuvot of Ottoman Empire Sages" identified 71 fragments from the "Late Genizah", which includes some 115 responsa; majority of respondents were identified, some of them among the greatest authorities, and some new and surprising faces in the responsa literature.
This collection provides an additional building block for the study of responsa literature, based upon manuscripts from the Cairo Genizah, and reveals to the reader new matters which have not been dealt with in the past either in religious or scholarly literature. Some of the fragments shed new light upon or add new data concerning events and issues that were dealt with during that era, and about which there have been hints in previously published responsa literature. Almost all of these responsa fragments are being published here for the first time.
