1553 La Biblia de Ferrara Facsimile

The Ferrara Bible, a word-for-word translation from the Hebrew Tanakh into Ladino (a Judeo-Spanish dialect) became a vital resource for the Sephardim living under persecution during the Inquisition. Its translation style also had an indirect influence on later Spanish Bible translations because of its focus on accuracy and the use of clear, understandable language.

Our 1553 La Biblia de Ferrara Facsimile is a faithful representation of the historic work by two courageous men -- translator Abraham Usque (Duarte Pinel), and financier and typesetter Yom-Tob ben Levi Athias (Jerónimo de Vargas) -- preserving its original typography and layout in a high-quality, leather bound reproduction of the original text.
