The Great Hours of Rouen is a Christian prayer book printed by Antoine Vérard in Paris in the early sixteenth century with hundreds of small woodcuts assembled on all the pages to create lavishly decorated and historiated borders and larger woodcuts introducing major textual divisions. These are attributed to Pierre Le Rouge. In the splendid copy printed on parchment in the Leber Collection in Rouen, hundreds of initials have been painted by hand, and the prints are exquisitely hand colored.

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.
