The Book of Prophecies is a collection of citations from the Christian Latin Bible and ancient and medieval authorities compiled at Granada beginning in 1501 under the direction of Christopher Columbus. The compilation was to serve as source material for a treatise—never written—justifying the Christian conquest of Jerusalem and the conversion to Christianity of "the islands of the Indes and of all peoples and nations." Six scribes, including Columbus himself, did the copying. He took the book on his fourth voyage when he added notes concerning that expedition.

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.
