Hagadah produced expressly for the use of the community of Marranos (or New Christians) who held fast to crypto-Jewish traditions in Northern Portugal. Commonly thought to have faded into extinction, the community was regenerated under the leadership of Barros-Basto. See C. Roth, History of the Marranos (1932) pp. 370-76.
