Barcelona Haggadah, folio 43. The BARCELONA HAGGADAH is one of the finest illuminated Hebrew manuscripts in The British Library. Written in about 1340 when Barcelona was home to a flourishing centre of manuscript illumination, the Haggadah is outstanding for the rich decorative and representational illuminations scattered throughout the text. Its fanciful figures, medieval musical instruments and pictorial scenes provide fascinating insights into Jewish life in medieval Spain. by shari
