The two fragments constituting Ruodlieb are the only surviving evidence of the epic poem Ruodlieb, which is believed to be one of the first courtly romances. The poem, which is not preserved in its entirety, tells the story of a young man of that name who seeks his fortune, learns moral lessons, and embarks on humorous adventures. Both fragments, the Munich fragments a working copy and the St. Florian leaves a fair copy, were perhaps written at the Tegernsee around 1030-1050 under the supervision of the story's author.

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.
