The Saint Petersburg Latini is an illuminated encyclopedia made in Thérouanne in the second decade of the fourteenth century. The Florentine scholar Brunetto Latini compiled its immense body of information addressing various topics, including history, ethics, and government. The manuscript, one of more than thirty surviving manuscripts of the popular French text, boasts 115 miniatures in northern French Gothic style—with burnished gold or diapered (geometrically pattered) backgrounds—in a palette dominated by red, blue, and gold. It is famous for its twenty-six miniatures of animals.

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.
