Made either at the Cistercian abbey of Morimondo in Lombardy or its mother house of Morimond in northeastern France around 1174, the Morimondo Antiphonal - Temporal is a notated manuscript choir book containing chants to be sung in prayer services at Morimondo. It includes chants for the major Christian holidays, beginning with Advent—the season of preparation for Christmas—and for Sundays, as well as a tonary (which groups chants by their musical mode). The manuscript features fourteen decorated initials with foliate and geometric motifs.

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.
