The Florence Carmina Regia is a manuscript collection of panegyric poetry written in homage to Robert of Anjou, King of Naples. It was produced in Italy in the first half of the fourteenth century, shortly after the original text was written. It is lavishly decorated, boasting fifty-nine paintings, many intricately intertwined with the text. A striking portrait of the king himself, enthroned against a background of large golden fleurs-de-lis, faces a personification of Italy on the facing page (fols. 10v-11r).

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.
