AbstractThis article reconstructs the early stages in the history of two manuscripts from El Escorial Library containing different Jewish treatises on Kabbalah from Late-Medieval Iberian authors. Both manuscripts, copied in Italy by Sephardic scribes, were acquired in the late sixteenth century for the new Royal Library in the Monastery of El Escorial. Codicological and paleographic elements are considered, as well as the transmission of Sephardic Kabbalah, in the light of book history and manuscript production of Sephardic Jews in sixteenth-century Italy. More specifically, the material analysis of the manuscripts will reveal how each one of them came to be a book, exposing diverse processes of production and consumption of handwritten books among Sephardic Jews in Italy.
