Feast from Book of Esther. Illuminated manuscript miniature from the 15th-century Alba Bible, depicting the feast given by Queen Vashti and King Ahasuerus of Persia (The Book of Esther). Vashti was banished and a Jewish girl Esther succeeded her as Queen of Persia. 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.
