Green and black marblepaper on cardboard with corners and spine in parchment.  Written in pencil on the spine – “211”.  On the back cover, in the upper left corner, there is a white sticker with two thin black borders inside which is inscribed in black ink “Cod. Hebr. 211”.  Red, black and gray pastedown and first and last fly leaves. – Ask Andreas to complete.

 

36 Decoration Program

The decoration was made in one stage by one artist.

  1. Five half-page decorative panels, three set at the beginning of books (45, 87v, 153v) and two set at the end of books (fols.114v, 188).  All the panels are decorated within by delicate scrolls executed in light and dark brown ink, ending in floral motifs which are painted in red, blue, green and burnished gold, highlighted sometimes with white paint and set on the parchment ground.  The floral motifs are sometimes joined by acanthus leaves.   The panels are all double framed by blue and gold borders, except for fol. 45 which is framed by a band painted in alternating blue and pinkish-brown.  Extending alongside the panels are the same scrolls as within the panel. 
  2. Many decorated Parashah signs (e.g., fols. 1,2, 19, 24, 29, 33, 38, 41v, 58v, 63, 65v, 69, 72v, 76, 80v, 84v, 91v, 94v, 97, 99, 102, 105, 107, 110v, 112, 132, 135, 138, 141v, 146v, 149v, 157, 162, 166, 170v, 174, 182, 183v), set in the inner or outer margins of the page.  The parashah sign includes the abbreviation of the word "Pericope" ( פרש ), written in square script in brown ink within a red ink cartouche, mostly shaped as lozenges (e.g., fols. 24, 76, 97) and some in other geometrical shapes (e.g., fols. 162, 166, 178, 182, 186v). The cartouches are decorated by tendrils, often extending along most of the margin. 
  3. Two small decorative panels set adjacent to the titles of the Haftarot of "Shabbat Hol Ha-Mo'ed" שבת חול) המועד) (fol. 230) and the first day of Sukkot (fol. 241v). The panels are executed in brown ink and contain a simple guilloche motif in spared ground.

 

36 Summary and Remarks

The Vienna Sephardi Pentateuch is a small-format codex, containing the text of the Pentateuch and Haftarot for Sabbaths and festivals, mostly following the Sephardi rite and written in square Sephardi script.  The manuscript in its present state is incomplete, opening with Genesis 10:26.  The ending of the manuscript is missing as well, although it is not possible to determine how much of the text is missing.  It would seem clear that the readings for two of the Special Sabbaths are missing (Shabbat Ha-Hodesh -the reading for the Sabbath of the New Moon of the month of Nissan), and Shabbat Ha-Gadol – the reading for the Sabbath before Passover).  Although we are familiar with other Sephardi manuscripts which include only the texts of the Pentateuch and haftarot (e.g., Parma, Biblioteca Palatina, Cod. Parm. 677, Lisbon, 1473; Parma, Biblioteca Palatina, Cod. Parm. 2026, Sepharad, 15th century) it cannot be ruled out that our manuscript may have originally included other texts, such as the five megillot which sometimes appear after the Pentateuch and haftarot in Sephardi manuscripts of this type (e.g., Parma, Biblioteca Palatina, Cod. Parm. 2825,Spain, 1442;Parma, Biblioteca Palatina, Cod. Parm. 2948,Spain, 1474;Parma, Biblioteca Palatina, Cod. Parm. 2018,Spain, 1484).  

The Vienna Sephardi Pentateuch does not include the text of the massorah which appears in many Sephardi Pentateuchs and Bibles.  Our research has concluded that this omission of the massorah was most probably intentional, since there is no evidence of ruling in the upper or lower margins, which would have been intended for the massorah. Also the fact the text is written almost entirely in one column points to this conclusion, since the massorah parva is often written in between the text columns.

The Vienna Sephardi Pentateuch was written by a single scribe whose name remains unknown, as the manuscript in its present state does not include a colophon.  It is a possibility however, that such a colophon did exist in the sections of the original manuscript which are now missing. The script, as well as the codicological features, indicate a Spanish origin for this Vienna Pentateuch.  The scribe employed the technique of signatures, i.e. the numbering of the quires twice with Hebrew letters in order to insure the correct order of the codex.  This technique is found in Hebrew manuscripts originating from many geographical areas, but almost never found in Ashkenaz (Beit-Arie, Hebrew Codicology, p. 61).  In most manuscripts originating from Spain, the signatures are employed in addition to catchwords, however there is no evidence of catchwords in our manuscript.  The ruling was executed with a stylus and the pricking was employed in the outer margins only, as was common in Sepharad, mainly from the 14th century on (Beit-Arie, Hebrew Codicology, p. 74) Need to ask Aliza to check what was the working unit for the ruling – very important!

Moravia  The manuscript eventually reached the Austrian National Library in 1877, as part of a group of manuscripts which were purchased for the library from Hirsch Lipschütz. 

The decoration of the Vienna Sephardi Pentateuch is purely ornamental and includes five half-page decorative panels, set at the beginnings or ends of books, as well as many decorated parashah signs and two tiny decorative panels.  The use of decorative panels for the opening or closing of books of the Bible is very common in Sephardi manuscripts.  The present research however, indicates that our manuscript seems to be rare in the fact that its decorative panels do not include an initial word set within them.  Many other examples of such panels in Sephardi manuscripts do include such initial words, usually written in large display letters (e.g., fols. 1v, 61v of the Ambrosiana Catalan Bible, Milano, Biblioteca Ambrosiana, Ms. C. 105 sup. dated to the third quarter of the 14th century and fol. 4v of Madrid, Biblioteca del Palacio Real, Ms. II 3231-3246, vol. 8 produced in Toledo in 1487).  It would seem that the original intention of the scribe of the Vienna Sephardi Pentateuch was that the panels would indeed be purely decorative without including text, since the opening and closing words of the books are not missing, but rather appear in the main text written by the scribe himself.  At the present state of research it is still unclear why the scribe chose not to include the initial words within the panels themselves, as was the dominant convention in manuscripts produced in his environment. 

The foliate scrolls, floral motifs and semi-stylized ornamental flowers and leaves depicted within the panels in our Vienna Pentateuch can be compared to those appearing in other Sephardi manuscripts such as those appearing on fol. 4v of Madrid, Biblioteca del Palacio Real, Ms. II 3231-3246, vol. 8, produced in Toledo in 1487 (Metzger, 1492, p. 176, fig. 4).  Also similar to our decorations are the scrolls, floral motifs and small pen squiggles appearing in the left margin on fol. 92 of a Siddur of Sephardi Rite possibly produced in Lisbon in the 15th century (Jewish National and University Library, 8˚844) (Books from Sefarad, p. 69).     

The frame of the panel on fol. 45 of the Vienna Sephardi Pentateuch  is also stylistically related to the decoration of Sephardi manuscripts of 14th-15th centuries.  It is composed of an alternating blue and pinkish-brown band decorated by thin zig-zags and wavy lines in white paint and decorated by a small gold square set at each corner and a small gold pyramid set at the middle of each side.  Comparisons to this frame can be found in other Sephardi manuscripts such as the one appearing on fol.16 of the Rylands Haggadah, Catalonia, mid. 14th century (Manchester, John Rylands Library, Heb. 6).  And the ones appearing on fols. 19v, 20, 29v, 30 of the Sarjevo Haggadah, produced in Barcelona in the second half of the 14th century (Sarajevo, Nationol Museum).   A close resemblance to our frame can also be found in the frames on fols. 3v-4, of the Duke of Sussex Catalan Bible, produced inCatalonia during the 14th century (London, British Library, Add. 15250).

The decorated parashah signs appearing in the Vienna Sephardi Pentateuch , which are written in brown ink and surrounded by red filigree are very common as well in Sephardi manuscripts of the 14th and 15th centuries (e.g., …).

Fol. 45: A half page decorative panel filled with foliate scrolls is set between the ending of Genesis and the beginning of Exodus, in the upper part of the text page. The scrolls extend from a blue flower set in the centre of the panel, comprised of four large petals curving inwards, tinted with white paint to create shading.  In between the petals are four drop-shaped gold leaf petals.  The scrolls are drawn in light and dark brown thin scrolls ending in leaves, flowers and buds painted in shades of red, green, blue and gold leaf.   Some of the flowers have white paint on them for shading.   The panel is framed by an alternating blue and pinkish-brown band decorated by thin zig-zags and wavy lines in white paint.  The band is also decorated by a small gold square set at each corner and a small gold pyramid set at the middle of each side.

20 Description

Fol. 188: Half page decorative panel set at the end of Deuteoronomy, on the bottom half of the text page.  The panel is divided into four triangles by green painted lines which extend from each of the corners, creating the shape of an X. In the centre of the X is a flower with four large blue petals curving inwards, tinted with white paint to create shading.  At the top of each blue petal there is a drop-shaped gold leaf petal from which extend thin scrolls and squiggles/tendrils? drawn in brown and black ink and ending in leaves, flowers and buds painted in shades of red, green, blue and gold leaf.   Some of the flowers have white paint on them for shading.

The panel is double framed by an inner thin blue frame and an outer thin pinkish-brown frame.  Surrounding the frames on the top and both sides are scrolls and floral motifs of the same type as those inside the panel.
