The Little Book on Marriage is an early humanist text by Albrecht von Eyb printed in Nürnberg in 1472. The text deals with the moral and practical questions of Christian marriage, debating the value of the institution, and ultimately arguing in favor of it. Although not the first treatise on marriage, von Eyb's text is valuable for its locus at the end of the Middle Ages and beginning of the modern period. The copy in the Gutenberg-Museum contains at least one painted initial with vegetal flourishes executed in colors and gold and many smaller initials in two colors.

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.
