MEA'H BERACHOT("One Hundred Blessings”)

Prayers and instructions issued for Marrano refugees, in Hebrew.Engraved frontispiece by the Jewish artist Benjamin Godines depicting Man’s Five Senses by way of the performance of five ceremonial acts.

Amsterdam 1688. Albertus Magnus
13 x8.5 cm.(5) ff. 303, 20,(10); pp.

This most striking pocket-sized prayer book contains detailed prayers and instructions for living a Jewish life.It was issued for Marrano refugees [thus revealingthat the Jewish community retained its Spanish culture nearly 200 years after fleeing the Inquisition].
Included in the Me’ah Berachoth are: the Haggadah for Passover, an index of blessings for the entire year including relevant laws and commentary according to Sephardic rite, prayers for the sick, prayers for the last rites, and prayers for martyrs who were burned at the stake by the Spanish Inquisition. Of interest are the ceremonies celebrating the birth of a daughter, “Zeved ha-Bath” , and the circumcision ceremony of proselytes and servants.
Me’ah Berachoth is the only known Hebrew publication by the gentile Albertus Magnus. A publisher, bookseller and bookbinder, he did not have a printing house of his own, though his name appears on several Dutch publications. It is difficult to ascertain who printed the Me’ah Berachoth for Magnus. Fuks suggests David de Castro Tartas.
