The Codex Albensis is an antiphonal—a book of chants to be sung by the choir and soloists in the Christian prayer services of the hours. It was made in the early thirteenth century, perhaps at Székesfehérvár in central Hungary, an important station on the land route to the Holy Land at the time. It is significant for its inclusion of an office for the eleventh-century sainted Stephen, King of Hungary. It includes a series of amusing marginal drawings of animals.

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.
