The Haggadah in the past 1000 years...

As of 2006, the oldest complete readable manuscript of the Haggadah found today is in a prayer book compiled by Saadia Gaon in the tenth century. It is not until the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, however, that Haggadoth were being produced as works in their own right.

It is believed that the first printed Haggadoth were produced in 1482, in Guadalajara, Spain; however this is mostly conjecture, as there is no printer's colophon. The oldest confirmed printed Haggadah was printed in Soncino, Italy in 1486 by the Soncino Press.
