  1. For centuries, it was believed by many that the Ra'ah authored Sefer HaChinuch, as the latter was written by a Talmid of the Ramban who is a Levi.[1] Later Acharonim determined that might not be the case, because their rulings are sometimes contradictory.[2]
  2. It's questionable to say the Chinuch didn't see the Rambam's Sefer HaMitzvot.[3]
