Sarevejo Haggadah



I found pictures of the original Sarvejo Haggadah. It is significant because Jews in Medieval Europe were not allowed to create man's image. This is amazing. But i The pictures shown here is what you find in Medieval Europe in a Cathedral and in Christian books. I do wish that Geraldine Brooks would have inserted pictures in her books for readers to see.

There is so much info out there if you do a search I couldn't believe it I found a blog with the person who discovered the Haggadah in Bosnis in the 90's. I can't explain this but it makes history come alive.

These pictures certainly would have been an enhancement to the book. Thanks for the link1!
