    English Text:

    The Jews of the Comtat Venaissin were distinctive for using a liturgy based on the old Provençal rite. This handsome liturgical manuscript from the Provençal rite (Avignon, Carpentras, L’Isle, etc.) was copied in a fluid hand, with strong initial words and some slight ornamentation in the Haggadah, notably a drawing of a matzah. It is incomplete at the beginning.
