How did the hadith masters pass judgmental of the reliability of narrators if they did not investigate their biographical information themself. ?Most of Masters lived in a time which was several decades after the earliest narrators were alive

So how did they get their biographical information on them? they must have relied on some historical sources or biographical data compiled by earlier historians.

So the Judgment of even the best masters is essentially dependent on this biographical data and historical resources

Salam it's based on Rijal books which you can find it between both of Shia & Sunni books about biographical data & somehow history of their era.

Wasalam

So essentially the Sunni hadith masters have to rely on history and rijal works 

So their opinion is based on 2nd hand information and cannot be considered reliable ?
