Codex Manesse

Place of OriginZurich
Dateca. 1300-ca. 1340
DescriptionThe Codex Manesse is an irreplaceable manuscript of extraordinary universal value. In the literary tradition of the western Middle Ages, there is no direct comparable counterpart. Due to the discourse on love, which is captured in the Codex Manesse in a unique manner, parts of the nobility in the 12th and 13th century underwent a new collective period of self-discovery, which had become overdue due to social change
