  Tosafists were medieval rabbis who collected commentaries on the Talmud, and appear in virtually every edition since it was first printed. As such, they parallel Rashi in their importance.
The Tosafists are so named for their commentary, "Tosafot," which translates as "additions" or "supplements." Some have seen the Tosafot as an addition to the Talmud itself. It carries on the Talmud's own methods of dialectical argument and debate.
