Long before 1471, Ferrara was an established center for the production of manuscripts. Local workshops under Leonello had stressed the classics and humanistic subjects, and under Borso d’Este had shifted their focus to magnificent illuminated books, to translations, and to vernacular literature. Under Ercole, they broadened still further. Ercole ordered at least four splendidly illuminated Breviaries for his personal use and among them is this wonderful “Orationes” by Saint Augustine.

A work of Andrea dalle Vieze (scribe) and Tommaso da Modena (artist), the Sant’Agostino Estense,  with its 68 miniatures embellished with gold and more than 130 gilded initials, was produced around 1482 for the Este court.

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.
