Manuscript on a parchment scroll – Ilan Sefirot. [Europe, 18th/19th century?]. Exceptionally long parchment scroll, with very detailed illustrations and diagrams of the Sefirot, Partzufim and Hishtalshelut HaOlamot, based on Kabbalah. The scroll begins with the heading "This is the Holy Tree of the Infinite Light, blessed be He and blessed be His Name". This Ilan is actually a composition in its own right, presenting the Hishtalshelut HaOlamot in a very detailed manner in diagram form, with explications following various opinions, and more. Such Ilanot Sefirot customarily served as amulets for safeguarding, blessing and protection. The scroll is read lengthwise. The bottom part of it is missing. Length of scroll: approx. 2.3 meters. Width: 8 cm. Good-fair condition. Stains and damage. Torn and lacking at end. Enclosed is an additional piece of parchment (15 cm long) from lower in the scroll, which does not complete it entirely. The scroll is placed in a silver case, without a lid.
