The Innsbrucker Codex stands as a significant anthology of Middle-Age short epics, renowned for its value in narrative analysis and as the most recently compiled assortment of its genre. This manuscript is home to 32 narratives, featuring works by notable authors such as Konrad von Würzburg, the Stricker, and Ruediger von Hinkhofen, and is further enriched by an array of fables and parodies drawn from ecclesiastical literature. The codex offers a rich tapestry of tales that encapsulate the cultural preferences of the medieval middle class. Its appeal for literary study is twofold: it houses an extensive collection of illustrations that exemplify the accessible and detailed "people's manuscript" style described by H. Wegner, and it stands as one of the rare repositories of illustrated narratives from the period.

The latter part of the codex includes an incomplete but crucial second copy of Gauriel von Muntabel by Konrads von Stoffeln, added to previously blank pages. Although the conclusion of this work is lost, its presence is pivotal in the annals of literary history. Konrad's rendition is a streamlined version of the story, offering a condensed narrative that contrasts with its more elaborate predecessor found in the Donaueschinger manuscript.

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.
