The manuscript F-129 in the Biblioteca Diocesana of Palma de Mallorca consists of a collection of books written by the Catalan lay missionary, philosopher, mystic, poet and novelist Ramón Llull (1232/3-1316), an intellectual and religious figure renowned for his apologetic writings and his teaching of languages.

A prolific and debated writer, Llull’s goal was to organize human knowledge into mathematic diagrams in order to write the work that would have converted Muslims and Jews.

This manuscript is an important witness of Llull’s thought because it includes the texts of the Tree of Philosophy of Love, the Song of Ramon, and The Book of the Gentile and the Three Wise Men, all written in Catalan.

Thus, the manuscript unifies the mystical novel of the tree of philosophy of love with the apologetic work in which unbelievers struggle to find the truth and finally embrace faith.

Portraits of Ramón Llull and the Philosophy of Love

The manuscript in Palma de Mallorca was made in the fourteenth century, with the addition of a fragmentary text (fol. 51r) on the Council (IV.48), composed by the same author, and datable in the fifteenth century.

The manuscript is rich of diagrams that explain the contents of the text. A miniature of the Tree of the Philosophy of Love opens the manuscript and represents Ramón Llull accompanied by the personification of the philosophy of love at the feet of a tree.

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.
