De balneis Puteolorum et baiarum, composed between 1212 and 1221 in Naples, Italy, describes the baths of Pozzuoli and Baia and praises their therapeutic virtues. The work is both a scientific treatise and a poetic composition, rich in both classical tensions and medieval imagery.

The author, Peter of Eboli, who had worked as a poet and man of letters in the Norman and Swabian courts, dedicated his work to Frederick II.

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.
