Do our rabbis have the authority to change halacha?

Can they create new prohibitions or obligations?

In this series we will survey the opinions of the principal poskim with an aim to understanding the underlying nature of rabbinic authority.

Hebrew sources are available through the links in both WORD format and pdf. In class we will translate and explain these sources.
