Omar Opener (2).jpg

The following exhibit is a curated collection of scanned leaves from an Arabic Bible owned by Omar ibn Sayyid, as well as two of his Arabic translations of the Lord’s Prayer, all dating back to the early-to-mid 19th century. The selected Bible leaves feature notations authored by Sayyid at an unknown date in the margins of the printed text (also known as marginalia).
