Book of Baruch

detail of an illumination by an unknown French miniaturist, from the Bible of Hainburg, 1300-1320, Episcopal Library, Pécs, FranceProfile

In the Catholic Bible, an inspired writing containing, in five chapters, the prophecy with which Baruch consoled the Jewish exiles on the River Sedi and which they sent, with some rescued silver vessels, back to Jerusalem. A sixth chapter is made of the Epistle of Jeremias, which seems rather to be of the authorship of Jeremias than of Baruch.
