Caption: Abraham's circumcision. Illuminated manuscript miniature from the 15th-century Alba Bible, depicting Abraham's circumcision (The Book of Genesis). Abraham was the founding father of the Israelites, and lived sometime in the second millennium BC. The Alba Bible, completed in 1430, is a translation of the Old Testament from Hebrew into Medieval Castilian. It was commissioned in 1422. The 513 pages are illustrated with 334 miniatures, produced by members of the Franciscan Order in Toledo. The original is displayed in Madrid, Spain. 500 facsimile editions were produced in 1992.
