The Geneva Codex, discovered in 2007, is an illuminated manuscript of Beatus of Liébana's allegorical commentary on the Christian biblical book of the Apocalypse. It dates from the mid-eleventh century and was created in southern Italy, making it one of only three Beatus manuscripts produced outside the Iberian Peninsula. The sixty-five unframed illustrations are mostly situated within the text columns and feature figures in vibrant colors against the unpainted parchment and schematic architecture.

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.
