The Book of Lisuarte de Abreu—named for the man who commissioned and partly wrote it— comprises two surviving parts. Part I is a collection of texts relating to maritime travel and voyages of the vessel Rainha; some of the work was completed while aboard the ship between 1558 and 1565. Part II contains copies of the standing portraits of governors and viceroys at the vice-regal palace in Goa, and watercolors of Portuguese naval vessels and their engagements from 1500 to 1565. Part III of the original work is missing.

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.
