When sacred books and scrolls became damaged and were no longer fit for use they were placed in the Genizah chamber. These two leaves from a small, personal copy of the Bible were written by a scribe called Joseph in Du Gunbadan in Iran. This Bible – the oldest dated medieval Hebrew manuscript – travelled far before it was eventually deposited in the Genizah.
Du Gunbadan, Iran, 903–4 CE
