The British Library’s Hebrew Manuscripts Project official blog has been launched today. The blog showcases over 1000 years of Jewish culture and social life from across the world – from the Middle East to China, and from North Africa to Europe – with a key collection of digitized manuscripts in Hebrew from the British Library’s own collections accompanied by expert commentary and articles

Featured documents on the first post include a 13th century Christian calendar from Northern France, and articles on marginalia and the illuminated Haggadot of medieval Spain
