The Entrance into Spain is a parchment codex made in the Veneto region of Northern Italy in the mid-fourteenth century. The Entrée d'Espagne (“Entrance into Spain”) is an epic poem in Franco-Venetian, the French literary language of northern Italy, describing the legendary early adventures of Roland in the service of the Frankish king Charlemagne. The manuscript originally belonged to the Gonzaga family, the ruling dynasty of Mantua. It is generously illustrated with 375 miniatures and three historiated initials.

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.
