The London Travels of John Mandeville is a series of twenty-eight full-page miniatures painted in Prague in the 1410s to accompany the Czech translation of a popular text that is a pilgrimage guide combined with observations about the topography, naturalia, and life at the courts of Asia and North Africa, a text credited to the fictional Sir John Mandeville. The artist of the distinctive green-tinted semi-grisaille images—with figures in tones of soft green and landscape features and backgrounds in full color—is known as the Master of the Mandeville Travels after these paintings.

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.
