Known as the Saint Emmeram Codex for its provenance at the Benedictine monastery of Saint Emmeram, the manuscript is an important source for Christian polyphonic music and contains more than 270 individual musical works. At least sixteen scribes copied the repertoire compiled in Regensburg in the mid-fifteenth century by priest and schoolmaster Hermann Pötzlinger (d. 1469). Although most of the music was composed in the first half of the fifteenth century, some pieces are earlier, and the compositions represent both the international and central European styles.

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.
