The Calendar of Albrecht Glockendon is a small, illuminated manuscript created in 1526 in Nuremberg by Albrecht Glockendon the Younger, who came from a famed family of artists active in Franconia. Each pair of facing pages of the twenty-four-page perpetual calendar opens with a colorful miniature of the labor of the month, which includes the appropriate zodiac sign, followed by a listing of Christian feast days. The calendar is accompanied by astrological and medical reference guides, including the zodiac man and a table for calculating the dates of Christian moveable feasts.

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.
