The arrangement of chant texts and prayers to be said by the priest in successive groups makes the Echternach Sacramentary and Antiphonary a forerunner of the Roman missal. In each formulary the notated chants are set down one after the other, followed by the orations. The chants with their neumatic notation are written in small script between the carefully executed letters. The rich ornamentation of both the script and the pictures – numerous purple pages and initials – gives this manuscript an extraordinary artistic value.

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.
