The Vienna Hispana Codex is presumably written in East France near the Rhineland, to judge by the script. This manuscript of canons is textually allied to that written in 788 for Bishop Rachio of Strasbourg and lost by fire in 1870 (C.L.A., VI. 835). Bound in 1527 at the expense of Johannes Marquardus (cf. fol. I). It bore the number 281 in the Ambras collection which was incorporated in the Vienna Palatine Library in 1665. The content: fol. 1r-202v: Canones Conciliorum, usque ad Concilium Hispalense secundum; fol. 202v-312v: Decretalia Pontificum usque ad Hormisdam, Virgilium et Gregorium; fol. 312v-313v: De valore numerico literarum graecarum.
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.
