Prof. Haym Soloveitchik has a theory of the origin of the German mesorah. He calls it the third yeshiva of Bavel. Prof. David Berger disagrees with the entire thesis, with arguments I find convincing.

However, that said, Prof. Soloveitchik makes extremely good arguments against the conventional wisdom that Germany's tradition comes from Palestine. His essay and response to Prof. Berger can be found in volume 2 of his Collected Essays.
