Jewish medieval heritage, document recovery. Restorer removing the interior part of the cover of a book. This is part of a wet gauze process lasting a few days, that is being used to uncover fragments of medieval documents in Hebrew script. This work is taking place at the Historical Archives of Girona, Girona, Spain. The fragments found in the bindings of some of the manuscripts stored here preserve a partial record of the historic medieval Jewish community of Girona. This community was an important centre of the kabbalistic movement in Western Europe in the 13th and 14th centuries. This work is part of a project to recover, restore and study these historical Jewish documents.
