Caption: Feast of Purim. Illuminated manuscript miniature from the 15th-century Alba Bible, depicting the inaugural feast of Purim (The Book of Esther). This part of the bible tells how a Jewish girl Esther became Queen of Persia and saved her people from genocide. This is celebrated annually at the Feast of Purim. 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.
