The Life and Miracles of Saint Louis is a manuscript biography of King Louis IX of France. Illuminated in Paris ca. 1482 by the Master of Cardinal Bourbon and associates, the book boasts 122 miniatures: forty-four portraying episodes in Saint Louis's life and seventy-eight depicting miracles affected at his tomb. It was made at the behest of Cardinal Charles de Bourbon for presentation to a duchess of Bourbon, perhaps Jeanne de France, and was subsequently owned by Charles VIII, King of France, who had Jean Bourdichon add a heraldic frontispiece.

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.
