20 Description

Fol. 1v:

A full-page panel, serving as a frontispiece for the Siddur including an initial word “Blessed be He” (ברוך [הוא]) for the opening of the Morning Prayer.  The initial word is written in burnished gold display letters outlined in black against a red background framed by a yellow band with a black-step crenellation motif.

The full-page pane was executed in the first stage of decoration. It is framed by a Gothic trefoil arch toped by three gables decorated with crockets, a rosette and gold finials, flanked by two spires. Two cocks surmount the two side gables, perhaps alluding to the morning blessing which refers to the cock.

On each side of the panel is a floral vine inhabited with birds. 

At the bottom of the panel is a large bordeaux medallion depicting two confronting human figures crowned with red thorn wreaths, fighting each other with a sword and a shield. The panel is in blue ground decorated with red and white floral vines inhabited with colourful birds and framed in red borders with two golden in both the lower outer corners of the frame

20 Description

Fol. 37:

The page opening the section of the Passover Haggadah includes an architectural panel occupying the upper part of the page, executed in the first stage of decoration. The panel is shaped on top as a trefoil arch and framed by a yellow band with running geometrical motifs.

The center of the arch includes a separate blue cartouche inscribed with the initial words “This is the bread” (הא לחמא), written in gold display letters outlined in red; the ascender of the letter “lamed” pushes up the upper border of the cartouche creating the central blue section of the trefoil arch.

The blue cartouche is surrounded by four hybrids set on an alternating red andbordeauxground in separate frames. The upper two are winged dragon hybrids with human face, confronting each other. The lower two are human head hybrids separated by a band with a running wave motif. The hybrid on the right is comprised of a lioness with a grotesque woman pointing with her two fingers to her missing eye emerging from its head. The hybrid on the left is winged, with two human hands and a tail ending in a dragon's head, and from its head emerges a hooded grotesque man blowing a trumpet.

Another small initial word pen-work panel of “wherein" (מה) appears in the left text column was added in the second stage of decoration.  The panel is filled with delicate red and purple pen-work filigree. Red tendrils extend from the panel and surround the left text column, ending in a flower from which emerges the bust of a man holding the first Seder cup of wine.

20 Description

Fol. 66:

The page opening the section of Hosha’not prayers of Sukkot is decorated with a large initial word panel occupying the upper part of the page. In the outer margin, adjacent to the panel is an illustration of a man holding in his hands two of the Four Species - a lulav (palm branch) and etrog (citron fruit), each encased in a special holder (see fig. 1, below). He is wrapped in a tallit (prayer shawl) covering most of his head and shoulders. The corners of the tallit are edged in red.

The initial word “Hosha`nah”  (הושענא)is written in burnished gold display script against the blue ground panel filled with white feathery scrolls with red dots and white flowers. The panel is surrounded with a gold frame decorated above and below with gold clusters of buds and with a single bud on each of the four corners and on the left and right borders.

A small pen-work initial word panel in red and pink filigree work is set in the right text column extending on the right into a decorated narrow band ending in the lower margin in floral tendrils. The decoration was executed in the second stage of decoration.

Fol. 67v

The page of the Hosha’anot prayers for Sukkot is decorated with three small pen-work initial word panels, executed in the second stage of decoration.

The initial words are written in black ink within a panel filled with delicate filigree pen-work in alternating red and purple.  The pen-work extends on the right into a decorated narrow band ending in tendrils. The tendrils of the upper right panel for the initial words “Man and beast(אדם ובהמה) "incorporates a red hybrid, comprised of a half-goat, half-human body, pointing to the panel. This hybrid probably illustrates the initial words man and beast.

20 Description

Fol. 78:

The Ma’ariv for the first night of Passover is decorated on top by a large painted initial word panel, occupying the entire width of the text and illustrated above by Mazzah and Maror. Three small pen-work initial word panels are inserted in the text columns below the large panel.  All the decorations on the page were executed during the second stage of decoration.

The initial word ליל ( שימורים) “Night of […]”  is written in gold, with the ascenders of the "lamed“ dinding in a leafy motif, set within a blue panel filled with white feathery scrolls with red dots and white flowers. The panel is surrounded by a gold frame decorated with gold clusters of buds on the top and on the sides of the frame, and with single buds in the four corners. Resting on the upper part of the frame are two golden baskets, the one on the right contains three round pierced Mazzot and the one on the left contains green leaves as the Maror.

The small pen-work initial words are written in black ink within a panel filled with delicate filigree pen-work of alternating purple and red.  The pen-work extends along the margins and between the text columns. The extension of the top panel in the left text column includes a human mask.

Full-page panel, serving as a frontispiece for the SeMaK encloses in its centre the initial word “to know” (לידע) opens the first chapter of the SeMaK.  The panel was executed in the first stage of decoration.

The full-page panel is framed by Gothic architecture of a large gable flanked by two domed towers surmounted by two squirrels. A tiled roof of green and red is seen behind the arch. The arch is decorated with crockets along the ribs, a rosette window and a yellow trefoil arch at its center. The yellow arch is duplicated by an inner grey arch on red ground; both decorated with rosettes windows and fleur-de-lis finials at the centre.

The lower part of the panel is filled with heraldic white animals set within lozenges such as: a crowned mermaid holding two dolphins, a crowned lion, a deer, and with yellow eagles within medallions, all set on alternating red,bordeauxand blue grounds.

20 Description

Fol. 163:

The page opening the second chapter of the SeMaK includes a painted part-page panel set on the upper part of the page executed in the first stage of decoration.

The panel is decorated above by gothic architecture of a gable with a gothic window topped by three crenellated towers,  containing the initial word “to destroy”  (לאבד), and is surrounded by a hunting scene. This page was executed in the first stage of decoration. The initial word is  written in burnished gold display letters outlined in red and set on a blue ground inner panel, whose top is shaped as two trefoil arches. Foliated scrolls curl around the blue inner panel on an alternating red andbordeaux ground and are inhabited by a hunting scene. The scene contains on the top right a hunter blowing a horn, in the center lower part of the panel are his two dogs chasing two rabbits running. A third dog in the lower left-hand corner is chasing a stag seen at the top left.

Initial letters are written in bold black ink at the beginning of each Mitzvah, and an inscription above the panel reads: נשלם יום אחד/ שבח לאל המיוחד//יוצרי יצליחני/ במצוות יום שני  ("The first day is completed; God will help me in writing the Mitzvoth of the second day").

The page opening the sixth chapter of the SeMaK includes a part-page painted a Gothic trefoil panel occupying the upper part of the page filling the width of the text space, executed in the first stage of decoration. 

The trefoil panel is topped by gables and spires decorated with crockets and green, purple and red onion shaped finials.

In the center of the panel is the word “to give” (לתת) , written in burnished gold display letters outlined in black against red ground decorated with pink branches.

The initial is set within a separate frame forming two arches above and below the word, the upper one accommodates the ascender of the letter lamed.

The initial word panel is surrounded by hybrids and dragons with leafy tails set on an alternating green and blue checkered ground. The hybrid on the right is composed of a donkey with human hands, while the one on the left is composed of an auk and a dragon. The dragons in the lower part are winged and their tails are intertwined. Both the inner initial word panel and the trefoil panel are framed by a yellow band with a black stepped crenellation motif.

20 Description

Fol. 256v:

The page opening the seventh section of the SeMaK includes an architectural part-page panel occupying the upper part of the page filling the width of the text space, executed in the first stage of decoration. The panel is shaped on top as a Gothic tower decorated with crockets and contains within it a panel for the initial word, "to make the Kiddush, blessing over the wine". (לעשות קידוש) The word is written in gold and outlined in red, set on a blue ground framed by a gold border, forming four arches above and below the word, one of which accommodates the ascender of the letter lamed. It is illustrated on top by a crowned man appearing in the central window of the tower performing the kiddush for the Sabbath eve by raising a gold double cup (Doppelkopf), a well-known shape of a cup found in the first half of the fourteenth century.

The initial word panel is surrounded by five dragons on an alternating red and bordeaux checkered ground. Two winged dragons with leafy tails and leafy tongues flank the tower window, while three smaller dragons are set beneath the initial word panel. The one in the middle has a leafy tail and the other two are winged

36 Summary and Remarks

The type of kiddush double cup (Doppelkopf) held by the man in this panel can be compared to similar contemporary drinking vessels from Lingenfeld in the Palatinate region of ca. 1330 (see Codex Manesse, exhib. Cat. 1988, p. 103, fig. 12). Both cups are wide and shallow with lids.

A similar lidded cup appears in Codex Manesse which was produced in Zürich, 1300-1340 (Heidelberg, Universitätsbibliothek, CPG 848, fol. 205). The wandering poet is depicted kneeling before the abbot, offering him a cup with an open lid.

Prof. Daniel Sperber quotes the Magen Avraham from Poland in the 17th century, who wrote:…כי טוב לקדש על כוס גדול שישייר מאותו כוס לקידוש היום ולהבדלה  ( It is good to bless over a large cup so that some will be left for the Sabbath morning kiddush and for havdalah), implying that the person who leaves wine over from kiddush to havdalah is one of the three types to inherit the next world (Sperber, Customs of Israel, vol. 6. 1998, pp. 125-8). However, since they feared that pests or poisons such as snake venom may get into the uncovered wine, they used lidded cups. Prof. Sperber notes that not many of these kiddush cups have remained and the ones known from Germany and Eastern Europe from the 16th century on, and most probably were used by worshippers in synagogue. It seems, therefore, that the illustration of the man blessing over the lidded cup in the Vienna SeMak precedes those finds (Strenthal, Hebrew Illuminated, 2000).
