Caption: Moses at the burning bush. Illuminated manuscript miniature from the 15th-century Alba Bible, depicting Moses (far left) in front of the burning bush and an angel of God (The Book of Exodus). God told Moses to return to Egypt, from where he led the Israelites out of slavery to the Promised Land. 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.
