Wolkenstein A contains a total of 108 poems, both Christian devotional and secular, mostly composed by Oswald von Wolkenstein, who may have supervised the manuscript's creation. It was largely completed by 1425 in Tyrol, with additions dating as late as around 1440. Musical notation is offered for most of the poems, thirty-three of them polyphonic. A portrait of Oswald preserved inside the front cover, in which the author holds sheet music in his right hand, is generally accepted as an early "true" portrait that aimed to mimic the likeness of the person.

We have 1 facsimile edition of the manuscript "Wolkenstein A": Oswald von Wolkenstein: Handschrift A facsimile edition, published by Akademische Druck- u. Verlagsanstalt (ADEVA), 1977

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.
