As a respondent, the RaSHB”A answers inquiries directly, without unneccessary lengthy scholastic discussion. The number of his responsa, including this pseudo-Nachmanides collection, reaches well over three thousand, with inquries addressed from all parts of the world, and touching upon all phases of law - religious, family and civil, as well as theological concerns.
