The Regnault and Jeanneton manuscript in the National Library of Russia is the unique surviving manuscript of a French-language pastoral poem probably composed by René I, King of Naples and Jerusalem. The poem celebrates the king's love for his second wife, Jeanne, who is represented as Jeanneton in the poem's love story. The manuscript was created in France between 1492 and 1495 at René's behest for Jeanne, whose coat of arms is pictured together with his in the book. It features seventy-four charming narrative illustrations occupying the pages' margins.

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.
