Samuel ben Meir (Rashbam)

(c. 1085-1175)
   French biblical and talmudic commentator, grandson of Rashi. He was born in Ramerupt in northern France, and was a disciple of his grandfather. He engaged in sheep-farming and viticulture. His commen-taries expound the simple and natural meaning of the Bible and Talmud texts. He completed Rashi's commentary on Bava Batra and Pesahim, and his works were quoted by the tosaphists.
