Produced in late twelfth century Germany, the Song of Roland manuscript now in Heidelberg transmits a German-language version of the French epic poem of the same title. The poem describes the legendary deeds of the historical Roland, who led part of the Frankish army against the Basques at the battle of Roncesvalles Pass in 778. The manuscript's thirty-nine illustrations are unframed line drawings inserted into the text that depict the events of the narrative.

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.
