The Book of Deeds of James I of Aragon is the earliest surviving copy of the Llibre del fets (“book of deeds”), an autobiographical account of the reign of James I, King of Aragon, in Old Catalan. Told in the first person, the text emphasizes James's conquest of Majorca and the southern conquest of Valencia. The manuscript was written in 1343 at the monastery of Poblet in Tarragona, by Celestí Destorrents, a monk of the abbey. It is decorated with historiated initials, marginal vignettes of animals, and pen-flourished initials.

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.
