The Abrogans Codex is the oldest surviving manuscript in German. It is an alphabetical Latin into Old High German glossary named for its first entry, the Latin word abrogans ("humble"), followed by the Christian Lord's Prayer and the Apostles' Creed in German. Each letter group of glossary entries from A through T is introduced by an initial with simple decoration in red, and the first letters of many glossary terms have touches of red or are surrounded by red dots.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
