The Hours of Anna Colonna is an exuberantly illuminated Christian prayer book made for its namesake, who was married to Gian Antonio Orsini, Prince of Taranto, and who is pictured in the book. The manuscript's illumination is characterized by lively narrative scenes and imposing figures of saints isolated before burnished gold backgrounds with punchwork embellishment. Created in Puglia in southern Italy in the mid-fifteenth century, it boasts nineteen historiated initials with rich narrative detail and six full-page miniatures of saints by the San Corrado Master.

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.
