The Oliveriana Psalter is an illuminated manuscript of the biblical book of Psalms preceded by a Christian calendar and followed by an extensive collection of hymns. Created in the last quarter of the fifteenth century, perhaps in Prague, it features twelve calendar miniatures showing the labors of the months, full-page miniatures of the Tree of Jesse and Saint Jerome, and twelve large painted initials, of which four are historiated. Painted foliage, flowers, birds, and animals embellish the margins of many of the pages.

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.
