The Small Passion is one of the most beautiful known works of Albrecht Dürer. This collection, a joy of the German Renaissance illumination, was realized between 1509 and 1511, and it was published as a book. 

The work is made of thirty-six engravings, in addition to the woodcut cover “Vir Dolorum,” the image of the suffering Christ. This drawing wasn't included in any other work, and it's particular of this unique private collection.

This Magnus Opus of the great master had great popularity during the first decades of the sixteenth century, and inspired many Italian, German, and Flemish artists, like the engraver Marcantonio Raimondi, or the illuminators Nicholaus Glockendon (who composed the Book of Hours of Cardinal Albert of Brandenburg), and Simon Bening (The Very Small Hours of Montserrat, Book of Hours of Golf). In their works, these artists copied the scenes that Dürer imagined for his Small Passion.

The reduced dimensions of the book, the wonder of its scenes, its influence on contemporary and posterior artists, make of this masterpiece a fundamental title for every bibliophile or book and art lover.

It contains thirty-six xilografics engravings.

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.
