The Munich Codex was produced in Moldova in 1466 and contains a calendar on parchment and the four Gospels of the Christian bible (on paper). Each Gospel is introduced with a painted initial and a decorative border. The manuscript is written in the Hungarian language and seems to have derived from students of the church reformer Jan Hus, making the Munich Codex one of only a few extant texts of the Hungarian Hussite movement. Its painted borders include geometric and vegetal motifs and a curious human figure painted mostly in green, red, and yellow.

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.
