The Hitda Codex, an eleventh-century codex containing an evangeliary, a selection of passages from the Gospels, that was commissioned by Hitda, abbess of Meschede, about 1020, is conserved in the Hessische Landesbibliothek, Darmstadt, Germany. Its illuminations are highlights of the Cologne school in the later phases of the Ottonian Renaissance.

In its frontispiece Hitda is represented offering her evangeliary to St. Walburga. The Hitda Codex is the only surviving series of illuminations of the Cologne school of this period exhibiting the Life of Christ. The series of illuminations are set in their cultural context for an English-speaking readership by Henry Mayr-Harting.
