The Horas de la Virgen Maria is a remarkably preserved Flemish manuscript that was composed around 1450 in the Bruges area. It consists of 112 pages on vellum, written in Gothic script and bound by a luxury cover signed in 1948 by the great Spanish bookbinder Brugalla.

The manuscript is divided into 8 parts, which correspond to the Canonical Hours (matins, lauds, prime, terce, sext, none, vespers, and compline), and each part begins with a full-page miniature surrounded by sumptuous initials and floral borders.

The Horas de la Virgen Maria was composed during a flourishing period of European art, namely the 15th century, when Bruges had become the economic and artistic hotbed of Flanders.

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.
