The Vidal Mayor is an extensively illuminated manuscript of the law code promulgated by James I, King of Aragon. The Getty manuscript, a Navarro-Arogonese translation of the lost Latin text, provides unique insight into the legal customs of Aragon at a time of legal interactions among Christians, Jews, and Moslems. It was copied by Michael Lupi de Çandiu and illuminated around 1290-1310 in one of the urban centers of northeastern Spain. It boasts 156 historiated initials in the French Gothic style. The extenders into the margins include hundreds of whimsical figures.

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.
