Item description for The Illuminated Haggadah by Michael Shire & British Library...

Reflecting its Talmudic ancestry, this illuminated Haggadah contains Jewish stories and traditions, and is also a prayerbook made for use. It tells the story of release from persecution and slavery into freedom and a new life. It is as relevant today as when it was written, over 2000 years ago. The Exodux of the Children of Israel from Egypt is a pivotal event in the Bible, celebrated today in books, plays and films. Each year, during the festival of Passover, Jewish families gather to remember the Exodus. The evening meal, or Seder, is filled with biblical readings, symbolic foods to be eaten and songs to be sung. The traditional patter of this meal is recorded in the Haggadah - literally, "story-telling". The book is decorated with illustrations taken from the British Library's collection of Medieval Haggadot, and the commentary makes the book accessible to all readers.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Illuminated Haggadah?

Medieval Illuminations at there best  Aug 21, 2000
Many of the illuminations in this text are also in The Golden Haggadah - refer to the latter for the art history and criticism related to the illuminations.

This volume is a traditional Haggadah in Hebrew and English with illuminations from Medieval texts in the British Library. The result is a splendid, visually appealing book. The illuminations run from vines running down the margins of the page, to elaborate Hebrew letters, folk illustrations, and icon-like depictions of Biblical scenes. Here and there a bit of commentary on the contents of the ritual is included. It is clear that the hope of the authors that the Haggadah be not only a beautiful book on your shelf but also be used as a beautiful book in the celebration of Passover.

One of the most engaging and interesting haggadahs  Apr 3, 1998
The Haggadah is beautiful and the text is authentic and easy to follow. It is not only an art book, it is a practical and useful haggadah for use during the seder. It brings Pesach to life and connects us to our history.
Beautiful and usable hagaddah  Mar 7, 1998
This is a beautifully illustrated hagadah with rare images. The text is very easy to follow and the commentary is very helpful and insightful.
