The Borgia Group is the designation given by scholars to a number of mostly pre-Columbian documents from central Mexico, first identified by Eduard Seler. The manuscripts have survived despite their having reached Europe at an early date. They are distinguished by their religious content, while the pre-Columbian codices of the Mixtec group are principally historical. The place of origin and the linguistic identity of the creators of the codices have been subject to debate, but may well be Puebla - Tlaxcala - Western Oaxaca. The main members of the Borgia Group are:
- The Codex Borgia, after which the group is named. The codex is itself named after Cardinal Stefano Borgia, who owned it before it was acquired by the Vatican Library.
- The Codex Cospi.
- The Codex Fejérváry-Mayer.
- The Codex Laud.
- The Codex Vaticanus B.
