The unique position that the Codex Egerton has amongst the genre of Mixtecan manuscripts lies in it‘s verifiable date of origin. During the first half of the 16th century as the Conquistadors were conquering the Central American regions in the name of the Spanish throne, two “high” cultures clashed and it is out of this time period that the Codex Egerton emerges. Within the codex two vastly different traditions; old American and European, find themselves merging together to form a new, unique culture. The content predominantly deals with local tradition presented through the historiography giving a description of the genealogies where the structural emphasis is placed on the female lineage. There is a strong European influence in the style of the pictures visible through the use of enlarged figures arranged in an unstructured way and which represent a significant departure from the normally formal concentration found in pre-Columbian handwriting.

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.
