    re: Aggadah
    While Rishonim – particularly Ashkenazic Rishonim, have estalbished MINHAG based upon Midrash/Aggadah. The Maharil does this a lot e.g. no snaedek may serve tsice for the same family.

    But I have rarely seen Aggdic values influence the strict letter of Halachah in the Rishonim. This seems to be a later Aharonic innovation.
