Made in Constantinople in the late thirteenth century, the Vatopedi Octateuch is a large manuscript that formed the second volume of a two-volume Christian Octateuch, a manuscript of the first eight books of the Greek translation of Hebrew scripture. Its text and 160 images were largely copied from a twelfth-century manuscript (Vatican City, Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, MS Vat. gr. 746), but the artist also borrowed some features from the Joshua Roll. The miniatures are distinguished by their careful execution, with gently-shaded facial features and drapery forms contributing to their naturalism.

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.
