The Wiesbaden Codex, sometimes called the Reisenkodex or "Great Codex" because of its massive page size and volume, was created around 1200 at the Rupertsberg monastery in the upper Rhine valley. The manuscript comprises the nearly complete works of Saint Hildegard (1098-1179) and was started shortly before or after her death. Her writings are renowned for their complex mystical, visionary, and scientific topics. Large red initials, sometimes flourished, introduce new sections of text.

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.
