The Rennes Hours of Jean de Montauban is a Christian prayer book named for its original owner, whose coat of arms is included in three places. Soon after its creation in Brittany in the 1430s, Jean gave the manuscript to his sister Isabeau upon the occasion of her marriage in 1436. With 110 miniatures (thirty-seven of which are full-page) and full floral borders throughout, this book of hours is iconographically original indeed, including a fascinating cycle of the apocryphal life of Adam and Eve.

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.
