Begun in the second half of the fourteenth century in Tuscany, the Hamburg-Altona Manuscript, known also as the Codex Altonensis, is a lavishly illustrated copy of Dante Alighieri’s Commedia, a long Christian moralizing poem. The manuscript contains all three of the poem's canticles—Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso—with descriptive illustrations. The 187 completed miniatures of Inferno and Purgatorio are expertly painted in bright colors and illuminated with gold.

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.
