Halacha - Kohain
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: The Gemorra brings a disagreement between Rebbi Shimon bar Yochai and the Chachomim if a dead goy creates tumas ohel, the Rambam Tumas Meis 1:13 rules that it does not. While a goy does not become tamei from a meis according to the Torah, according to Rabbinic law he would become tamei from contact with a dead body, and presumably also from its ohel.
