The Pluteo 40.7 Manuscript of the Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri was initially copied and partially illuminated around 1380-1390 probably in Florence. The first of the poem's three sections, Inferno, includes a commentary by Graziolo De' Bambaglioli translated into Italian from the original Latin. The sixty-one unframed bas-de-page (bottom of the page) scenes in Inferno date from this early stage. The sixty-seven framed bas-de-page miniatures of Purgatorio and Paradiso date from the fifteenth century. The decorated initials with foliate motifs, 100 in number, are not Tuscan in style.

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.
