Manuscript name
The Magnificent Parchment
Summary
The witness of the Magnificent Parchment in an anonymous Tel Aviv and London private collection is a fine, early, and well-preserved paper copy of a family of large manuscript rotuli ("ilanot") to which we have given the name "The Magnificent Parchment." Only one witness (London - British Library Or. 6465 Scroll) carries a colophon, dating it to 1556; the ur-roll was probably crafted c.1500 in northern Italy. This family of "luxury" manuscripts is distinguished by its large size, its graphical richness, and its roughly 33000 word anthological text.
