The Valencia Virgil was copied either in Rome around 1460-1470 or in Naples around 1470-1500, when it was illuminated. Three artists, working with up to four assistants, are responsible for the forty miniatures, illustrating the manuscript's three Latin poems—Eclogues, Georgics, and the epic Aeneid by the ancient Roman poet Virgil. They worked in an Italo-Flemish style popular in Naples and a style influenced by contemporary Milanese art. The description of Aeneas's descent into the underworld in Book 6 of the Aeneid is especially richly illuminated.

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.
