The illuminated manuscript of the “Trionfi” preserved in Vienna, created at the beginning of the XVI century, belongs to the artistic production of the School of Rouen. The artists that worked on this manuscript broadened their interests towards the characters, the mythical, legendary or historic stories that Petrarch mentions in the poem. This manuscript is the French translation of the italian text.

The peculiarity of this manuscript consists mainly in the extraordinary number of miniatures: in almost all the other illuminated manuscripts of the “Trionfi” the illustration is limited to 6 miniatures of six triumphal carriages, while this copy has 86 large miniatures and over 1800 gold initial letters. Furthermore the illuminators, taking inspiration from the text, developed a sort of “visual hypertext”: in fact, in each illustration different plains of action in its temporal development are represented.

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.
