Electronic Enlightenment (Trial)
This trial will end 31 December 2017
Electronic Enlightenment is the most wide-ranging online collection of edited correspondence of the early modern period, linking people across Europe, the Americas and Asia from the early 17th to the mid-19th century — reconstructing one of the world’s great historical “conversations”.
Eavesdrop on the private conversations and thoughts of a wide range of figures such as Voltaire and Rousseau, and also the lesser-known, from bankers to booksellers, merchants to mathematicians, and scholars to servants. The correspondents discuss everything from religious tolerance to animal rights, vulcanology to classical archeology, economic modelling to celebrity culture.
