Rav and Shmuel held that orphans can’t collect a loan of their parent’s from other orphans if the parent of the debtor died first as a parent can’t pass an oath on to one’s children. Rabbi Elazar disagrees with them. The rabbis in later generations tried to override Rav and Shmuel’s opinion without success but managed to limit it in various ways. Can one do a gilgul shvua in a case where the oath is a rabbinic oath?
