This book is an English translation of the Code of Maimonides. It contains the intricacies peculiar to the rules of cleanness and uncleanness: owing to their nonrational nature, these rules are unlike those of any other branch of jewish law, civil or sacred; even for the initiated, even for the ancient 'Sages' themselves, the principles governing these rules are often obscure, baffling, incomprehensible.
