Created by Sephardi artists and scribes in Catalonia, the 14th century "Brother" Haggadah pictorially sets out the liturgy and sequence of the Passover Seder. This exquisite slipcased facsimile edition presents 120 color illustrations in an oversized format, giving a vivid sense of the original illuminated manuscript while telling the story of Moses in a medieval style. In his introduction, National Jewish Book Award winner Marc Michael Epstein focuses on the historical background of Passover and the iconographic scheme of the manuscript. Here too are essays on the provenance of the Brother Haggadah and beautiful translations of its poetry and commentary from Raphael Loewe.
