The Gemarah does not seem to make much mention of the 54 Torah Parshiot in the annual Torah reading. I don't know, offhand, what Ramba"m mentions about them either.

  • Who organized both the annual and tri-annual readings, in general, and when were they organized? Why were there differences (annual vs. tri-annual)?
  • How were the Parshiot decided? (Where each Parsha begins, the Parsha "names", Breishit, Noach, etc. (I know the name is taken from a word near the start of the parsha; I'm curious who decided on where each Parsha begins?)
  • Who decided which Parshiot should be doubled?

  • @Shokhet - Offhand, this looks like a start. My Hebrew is pretty good to understand it. But, an English source would be a huge help, since I can more easily copy / paste for my lecture. – DanF Oct 7 '14 at 0:09

    @DonielF Don't worry. It's nowhere as bad as the habit I have of duplicating my own questions! – DanF Sep 4 '18 at 13:38
