Braginsky Collection shows illustrated Jewish manuscripts and printed books from eight centuries, breath-taking marriage contracts and richly decorated Esther Scrolls.

The collection of the Swiss collector René Braginsky is generally considered to be the largest private collection of  Hebrew manuscripts in the world. It also contains a fair number of fine early printed books.

The collection does not only contain codices, but also several hundreds illuminated marriage contracts and Esther scrolls.

The oldest manuscript in the collection is the 1288 legal code of rabbinic scholar Moses of  Coucy.

Braginsky Collection app allows a glimpse into this world-famous private collection.

The app was originally developed for the exhibition «Schöne Seiten. Jüdische Schriftkultur aus der Braginsky Collection», which was shown in the Swiss National Museum in Zurich from 25 November 2011 until 11 March 2012. After the exhibition the app was redesigned and augmented with new images and texts.

The app is bilingual, English and German.
