This is a massive collation of the traditions which have grown up surrounding the Biblical narrative. These stories and traditions are scattered throughout the Talmud and the Midrash, and other sources, including oral. In the 19th century Ginzberg undertook the task of arranging the Haggada into chronological order, and this series of volumes was the result. The compilation consists of seven volumes (four volumes of narrative texts and two volumes of footnotes with a volume of index)
