The Morimondo Antiphonal - Sanctoral is a manuscript of notated chants for saints' feasts of the divine office, prayer services of the Catholic church. It was created for use at the Cistercian monastery of Morimondo in Lombardy around 1174, but whether made there or at its mother house of Morimond in France is uncertain. It may be one of a set of chant volumes including the Morimondo Antiphonal - Temporal. It boasts thirty-six decorated initials and a drawing of the "Guidonian hand" (a device designed to help a singer learn melodies).

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.
