Made around 1542-1547 in Venice, the Atlas of Henry VIII is an atlas prepared for Henry, King of England, by Battista Agnese. Besides its ten maps, the manuscript boasts an elaborate, painted dedication to Henry; the arms of Great Britain; a declination table; and a representation of an armillary sphere. A representation of a compass with the names of the winds in English is presumably an addition to the original atlas. A representation of the Barberini library and family members was added in the seventeenth century.

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.
