The Atlas, by the cartographer Abraham Ortelius, was realized in 1570, and is considered by the experts the first Atlas in history. 

In fact, for the first time it is possible to find all the available cartographic information. It is composed in an orderly and uniform format, proportionate to the maps of each region of the known world, and completed by historical, gastronomic, artistic facts.

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.
