Commissioned in the late 14th century by Pope Boniface IX, this manuscript is a superb example of Late Gothic illumination. Its 11 full-page miniatures, illuminated initials and refined frames are splendidly decorated with vivid colors and gold leaf.

The pontifical, a traditional Western Christian liturgical book, contains both the texts and instructions for rites to be performed by the Pope or the bishops.

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.
