The Floersheim Haggadah is an illuminated manuscript of the texts and instructions for the Jewish seder, the ceremonial meal that inaugurates Passover, the annual commemoration of the ancient Israelites' deliverance from slavery in Egypt. Created in the Ashkenazi community and dated 1502, the Floersheim manuscript is remarkable for having been illuminated by a Jewish artist well-versed in rabbinic midrash. It features eighty-nine marginal vignettes, all related directly to a word or words on the page. They include author portraits, scenes of the contemporary seder, and illustrations of the story of the ancient Israelites.
