Massekhet Eduyot

עדויות – “Evidence” or “Testimonies”. Seventh tractate of Seder Nezikin included in the Talmud Yerushalmi but omitted from the Talmud Bavli. This tractate deals primarily with laws and legal precedents, with arguments presented by various sages in what were subsequently called the “unassailable traditions”.
