The Life of Saint Vincent Ferrer in the Biblioteca Histórica de la Universidad is the only surviving copy of the Catalan-language biography of Vincent Ferrer, a renowned Dominican preacher born in Valencia. It was published in the saint's native city in 1510 by the printer Juan Joffre (Joan Jofré) and is currently bound with other short texts. The biography was, according to the dedication, translated from Latin by Miguel Pérez (Miquel Pereç). It opens with a woodcut portrait of the saint pointing to a banderole bearing a warning about the final judgment.

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.
