The Prayer Book of Queen Beatrice is a manuscript of Christian prayers addressed to the Virgin Mary made in Italy in the second half of the fifteenth century for Beatrice of Aragon, Queen Consort of Bohemia and Hungary. Beatrice's coat of arms is pictured on the opening page, where the text's compiler, Saint Bonaventure, is depicted in an initial (fol. 1r). A miniature of the resurrected Christ displaying his wounds (fol. 172v) opens the final series of prayers. Pen-flourished initials of gold and blue further embellish the text.

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.
