Title: Bible : Preservation Lab Treatment Report
Author: Voynovich, Chris; Ebert, Jessica; Schieszer, Ashleigh
Description: This is a parchment manuscript scroll that contains the story of Ester written in Hebrew. The scroll's construction shows influences of a Torah's traditional assembly but is markedly different. The edges of each of the 5 sections are folded over approximately 1/4 inch and sewn together along the folds with linen thread. There are 10 sewing stations on the fold of each sheet where each section is joined (a Torah contains 12). The stitch is NOT a traditional butterfly stitch that is usually sewn through the folded edge. Instead, each sheet is pierced through the side of the folds (like a side stitch) and linked to the adjacent sheet with another side stitch that is pierced through the folded edge of the other sheet. As the thread advances to the next sewing station, it rests along the outside seam of the two sheets rather than resting inside the folded edge as a Torah is sewn. View Catalog Record
