The Codex Vaticanus is the only manuscript belonging to the Codex-Borgia-group that has retained the original look of an old Mexican illuminated manuscript; on both sides painted bands of leperello deerskin, and outermost pages that are glued to reinforced wooden covers. 



From a composition and content point of view, this codex is chiefly a collectors’ manuscript of religious and prophetic content. It was a reference book for Priests or fortune-tellers in order that they could determine the different times and its variations, in particular the holy year of 260 days (Tonalpohualli) and its subdivisions, all according to their mythological and religious meaning as well as to powerful deities and godly aspects.

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.
