University of Manchester Collections

The Special Collections Division of The University of Manchester Library holds significant collections of Hebraica. These include manuscripts, amulets, archives and rare books, many of which were gathered together by Dr Moses Gaster. This online collection contains images of complete manuscripts in Hebrew and Samaritan script, including the famous Rylands Haggadah. The collection also hosts images of objects and archival material accumulated by Dr Moses Gaster. The collection ranges from the thirteenth to the twentieth centuries, and from Europe to China. The Library’s collection of nearly 15,000 Genizah fragments can be found in the Rylands Genizah Collection.
