The manuscript boasts a lavish decorative program comprising a full-page frontispiece by the Boucicaut Master and 132 smaller miniatures by the Master of Luçon, the Master of the City of Ladies, the Master of the Adelphes, and the Master of Orosius, all artists who painted in the International Style, which features elegant figures in deep landscape or urban settings or in elaborate interiors.

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.
