The Vienna Biblia Pauperum is an unfinished fourteenth-century manuscript picture book presenting the Christian understanding of people and events of the Old Testament as prefigurations of events described in the New Testament and Christian history. It was produced at Klosterneuburg, north of Vienna. Pictured on each page are two episodes in Christian history surrounded by events and persons of the Old Testament. The first nine pages are fully colored, with the images of the remaining eight pages left unfinished, but the complex theology is fully represented and explained throughout.

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.
