The Girolamini Seneca is a deluxe manuscript of the ten tragedies attributed to the ancient Roman philosopher Lucius Annaeus Seneca the Younger. Made in southern Italy in the last quarter of the fourteenth century, it boasts splendid illumination in vibrant colors by the Master of the Girolomini Seneca, named for his work in this book. Extending over eighty-seven pages, the decoration takes the form of episode-by-episode illustration of the plots of the first four playsHercules furens, Troades, Phoenissae, and Medea—in 229 scenes.

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.
