The Anjou Bible is a glorious monument of Neapolitan painting, displaying its characteristic stylistic mélange of French illumination and new trends in Tuscan art. It was created around 1340 at the court of Robert, King of Naples, perhaps intended as a gift from the king to his niece and heir to the throne, Joanna I, Queen of Naples. It opens with a pair of imposing full-page frontispieces celebrating Robert and his family (fols. 3v-4r). More than 140 historiated initials, the most important painted by Cristoforo Orimini, embellish the Christian Vulgate Bible's text.

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.
