Incunabula from 1489, belonging to the printing house of Juan Parix of Heidelberg and Enrique Clebat, in Toulouse, Languedoc.

The Castilian bachelor Alfonso de la Torre wrote this essay towards 1440, requested by the prior of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, Juan de Beamonte.

The essay is made of two parts: in the first one, liberal arts are discussed, Metaphysics and Nature; and in the second part, moral philosophy, virtues and passions.

Twenty two engravings accompany each of the subjects addressed.

The author writes with learning and wisdom, in a prose typical of its era. It is a text which had a clear editorial success, and was printed several times.

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.
