There is a collection of "minor tractates" some of which contain material not found in other works of torah sh'baal peh (the oral law). What is the origin of these tractates? Who wrote/compiled them? What is their status in the hierarchy of torah sh'baal peh ie. do they outweigh a breita for example? Are they all considered authoritative?
