The Munich Parzival manuscript is the earliest surviving illustrated copy of Wolfram von Eschenbach's Arthurian epic. Also included are one of the oldest and most complete exemplars of his Titurel, as well as both of his Tagelieder (dawn songs). Created in the mid-thirteenth century in an Alsatian professional scriptorium, the Parzival is illustrated with four full-page miniatures, each in three registers. These illustrations visualize Parzival's adventures in an early Gothic style, with scenes at times inspired by Christian religious iconography.

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.
