The Hanover Esther Scroll, 1746 – a Masterpiece of Jewish Scribal Art Rediscovered

 

Panel Discussion
For a long time, this gorgeous scroll, written in German and lavishly illustrated, languished unseen in the archives of the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Bibliothek in Hanover. Recently rediscovered by scholars and published in elaborate facsimile by Taschen Books, the megillah yielded some surprising information. Join us for a fascinating discussion of its journey of discovery, its history, illumination and return to prominence. With Emile Schrijver, curator of the Biblioteca Rosenthaliana in Amsterdam, Elisheva Carlebach, Salo Wittmayer Baron Professor of Jewish History, Culture and Society, Columbia University, Vivian Mann, art historian, Jewish Theological Seminary and Sharon Mintz, Curator, Library, Jewish Theological Seminary and Judaica specialist at Sotheby’s.
