Jewish liturgical poetry (piyyut) was commented on since the Middle Ages until modern times, although most of the medieval texts have not been edited. The present study is the first comparative analysis of medieval piyyut commentary from Ashkenaz, including a full description of the genre, taxonomy of commentary elements and techniques and sample editions of several commentaries.
