Incunabula in which Pablo Hurus, in his Zaragoza printing house, in 1498 offers the most richly illustrated edition of this text which had previously seen significant editions.

Blocks of wood were used from previous editions based on the drawings of Erhard Reuwich.

Seven panoramic views, fold out plans (that which represents the Holy Land, measuring more than one meter), are included in this Mainz edition from 1486.

The view of Rome only appears in this edition and is inspired by the one in the Liber chronicarum of H. Schedel, edition of A. Koberger from 1493.

Another 14 drawings represent buildings, groups of people, animals and alphabets, and are framed within typically Spanish xylographic borders.

A full page engraving shows an allegorical scene of Mainz and 66 engravings recount evangelical events.

The lists of pilgrims who visit the Holy Land was much cherished and edited during the following two centuries.

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.
