Hadar Zekenim is an anonymous compilation of Torah commentaries by tosafists of the Franco-German school in the 12th-13th centuries. It includes discussions of Rashi’s commentary, opinions of earlier tosafists, midrashic traditions, and novel interpretations. It was first printed in 1840 alongside a commentary of the Rosh (Rabbeinu Asher ben Yechiel).
