20 Description

Fol. 18: Two panels depicting two Rabbis from the haggadah, both holding an open book, in the upper and lower part of the outer margin.

The upper panel, next to the text of Rabbi Yossei the Galilean, depicts a bearded man holding out an open book, seated in a green meadow against a blue sky.

The second panel, extending into the lower margin, shows Rabbi Eliezer, one of the five rabbis of Bnei Brak, seated on a bench and holding an open book inscribed with Hebrew-like squiggles. He has long grey hair and beard, and a three-tiered magenta hat. 

Elongated foliate scrolls extend from both the upper and lower sides of the frames, interlacing along the space between the panels.

(Loewe, facsimile 1988)

The iconography of rabbis who are mentioned in the text of the haggadah is similar in Sephardi and Ashkenazi haggadot of all periods. It usually has a bearded man sitting on a bench, holding an open book (figs. 1, 2, 4, 5). In most cases the rabbis are depicted in three-quarters view or in profile, but are sometimes shown frontally (figs. 1, 3).
