This copy of Dante’s masterpiece, dating back to around 1325-1350, is considered the first illustrated Divine Comedy ever produced and the only surviving copy crafted before 1350. It was made in Florence, more specifically in the workshop of Pacino da Bonaguida, by using tempera, gold leaf, and ink on parchment. Pacino was a lesser-known painting star of the fourteenth century who took inspiration from Giotto and ran with it in new creative ways. The text of the manuscript is written in littera textualis and includes glosses by Dante’s son, Jacopo Alighieri

The codex, also known as Dante Poggiali, owes this name to the Italian publisher and bibliophile Gaetano Poggiali, who acquired the book in 1807 and used it for his own edition of the Divine Comedy.

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.
