Maharatz Chayos on midrashic literalism - source

Here is just some of what Maharatz Chayos says about midrashic literalism and the nature of midrash aggada and aggadeta. I hope to highlight and discuss some salient points in the near future. I would just like all of these in one post so that I can work off of it and refer others to it. In the meantime, enjoy! Right click and open each link in a new window to see it full screen. The second column of the second page, for example, is quite interesting ... he bolsters his position that some midrashim are ancient historical record by showing how Josephus records the same story as history.
