Publication

Plans have been made to produce a faithful facsimile of the Prato Haggadah in an edition of 250 copies. It will include full color, full gold, binding appropriate to the period of the manuscript, and a separate volume of scholarly essays. By making a high quality replica of this manuscript available, the haggadah will be protected from physical wear and tear, obviating the need of researchers to handle the original. Moreover, the facsimile will allow a wide audience to become familiar with this interesting and beautiful liturgical work of the fourteenth century Spain.

Scholarly essays will include a discussion of the liturgical content, an analysis of the art, and a description of the scientific findings and conservation treatment.
