    Enter "jezuieten" as search term, and find digitized items from the University of Antwerp.

    The University of Antwerp has a modest collection of ca. 1400 objects, the bulk of which were gathered in the early 20th century by the Jesuit and art historian Ferdinand Peeters (+1942), whose primary goal was to collect representations of Antwerp (from portrayals of its buildings to maps of the city and its surroundings) from the 16th through the 20th centuries. Initially the objects were used to decorate the corridors of what was then the Handelshogeschool, or College of Commerce, but they are now stored and managed by the University Library’s department of Special Collections, which is responsible for valuable and fragile items.

    The University Libraries'Jesuitica Collection is comprised of books and manuscripts by and about the Jesuits, including anti-Jesuit writings, from the founding of the Society of Jesus in 1540 to the present. The collection focuses on works published prior to the suppression of the Jesuit order in 1773, and is the largest, most comprehensive collection of its kind in the Western Hemisphere. In addition to works on history, theology and philosophy, the collection includes major holdings in the fields of science, mathematics, exploration, archaeology, language, travels, the arts and culture. While the bulk of works in the collection are European-focused, the collection also includes rare and significant holdings on the Americas, Asia, and Africa. The Society of Jesus, whose members are called Jesuits, was founded by Ignatius of Loyola. It is a male religious organization of the Catholic Church. Jesuits are noted for their work in education, research, and scholarly pursuits. Boston College is a Jesuit University.

    Beyond Ricci: Rare Books from the Jesuitana Collection at Boston College

    A searchable website that provides scholars and researchers access to books containing historical narratives, maps, correspondence and musical compositions in five languages that depict life in China in early modern history and the East-West exchanges initiated by the early Jesuit missionaries.
    Among the many notable digitized items from the rare book collection are a 1735 translation of a French encyclopedia of China; an extensively detailed 18th century atlas; melody lines from the Chinese Imperial Court that were transcribed by Jesuits in the mid-18th century; and a translation of Confucian texts by the Jesuit missionaries that represented the first introduction of Confucius to the Western world.
    The website focuses on books from the Jesuitica Collection by or about Jesuit missionaries including Matteo Ricci, Philippe Couplet and Alvaro Semedo, as well as Roman-based Jesuits Christopher Clavius and Athanasius Kircher, who made use of the information sent back by the missionaries in China. It was written by Jeremy Clarke, who selected the books and images from the library’s collection of 2,500 volumes, all of which were published prior to the order’s suppression in 1773.

    Peter J. De Smet (1801-1873) was a Belgian Jesuit who came to Missouri in 1823. Beginning in 1838, De Smet began to travel across the western United States, then considered the wilderness of the expanding country. He journeyed the territories of the future states of Iowa, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, and South Dakota and visited Native American settlements. As he traveled, he created an extensive collection of maps, some officially for the United States government, some for the use of Jesuit missionaries who would preach to the settlements he encountered, and some for himself or close friends.

The project covers the work of thousands of authors from a wide variety of theological, philosophical, and ecclesiastical traditions.

  • L-**Biodiversity Heritage Library

    The Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) is a consortium of natural history and botanical libraries that cooperate to digitize and make accessible the legacy literature of biodiversity held in their collections and to make that literature available for open access and responsible use as a part of a global “biodiversity commons.” The published literature on biological diversity has limited global distribution; much of it is available in only a few select libraries in the developed world. These collections are of exceptional value because the domain of systematic biology depends, more than any other science, upon historic literature. Yet, this wealth of knowledge is available only to those few who can gain direct access to significant library collections. Literature about the biota existing in developing countries is often not available within their own borders. Biologists have long considered that access to the published literature is one of the chief impediments to the efficiency of research in the field. Free global access to digital literature repatriates information about the earth’s species to all parts of the world.

The library also owns Jesuitica which did not belong to the Jesuits, you can search for them by author names, or by title.

  • L-**UK, Bodleian Rare books (Japan/China)

    Japanese Manuscripts and Rare Books: ... Various kinds of missionary literature of the Jesuit Mission Press in Japan, collectively known as Kirishitan-ban, were produced from 1590 until the expulsion of the missionaries from Japan in 1614. The press used both Japanese and European typefaces, of both wood and metal. Many of these books were destroyed when the country was closed and the priests expelled. Today only 75 copies, including fragments, of 31 titles are known throughout the world. Thanks to its own long history the Bodleian is fortunate in possessing six of these rare titles, including Sanctos no gosagueo no uchi nuqigaqi (a Compendium of the Acts of the Saints), the first book printed from moveable type in Japan, which came with the collection of John Selden received in 1659 (Arch.b.f.69).

    Chinese Manuscripts and Rare Books: ...The Bodleian now holds as many as a quarter of all the extant Chinese books that arrived in Europe in the seventeenth century... Another notable accession from this period is the Jesuit missionary Guilio Aleni’s Tian zhu jiang sheng chu xiang jing jie (‘Illustrated Life of Christ’) (Sinica 60) of 1637, a particularly fine copy printed on heavy gold-flecked paper and bearing Portuguese manuscript notes on the cover.

  • L-18th century, 18thConnect

    18thConnect is a collaborative initiative headed by scholars at the Universities of Illinois, Miami-Ohio, and Virginia to develop a robust infrastructure for providing a comprehensive research environment for scholars working on the literature, history, the fine arts, and philosophy of the long eighteenth century (1660-1800). It works in partnership with NINES, directed by Jerome McGann at the University of Virginia, to offer scholars access to a wide range of cutting-edge, on-line resources in eighteenth-century studies. 18thConnect mediates between commercial vendors supporting these bibliographies and digital archives and the community of scholars working in eighteenth-century studies in order to draw on the collaborative expertise of the community in the updating and correcting these resources, effectively preserving their integrity.

This pdf lists the inventory of the archival fund, covering the years 1580-1823, containing 446 volumes, or 25.50 running meter.

    "Chile - Jesuits of America. The documentary cultural heritage of the Jesuits of America Fund under the custody of the Archivo Nacional de Chile contains documents produced by the Jesuits as well as inventories of their vast properties. It includes account books, royal orders, correspondence, reports and abundant information on religious, educational and economic activities. The Fund is indispensable for the study of the continuity, in Spanish America, of the work of the Society of Jesus and the vast network of schools and missions that educated both the elite and the indigenous populations they evangelized. The information contained in over 128,000 pages is intrinsically associated with the history of the West and of the vast Spanish Empire of the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries. The material is divided into eight sections corresponding to one country each: Chile, Peru, Argentina, Mexico, Colombia, Bolivia, and Ecuador. Several other countries are represented with smaller volume of documentation: the Antilles, Spain, Philippines, Panama, and Venezuela. The documentary Fund is a unique testimony to the intricate network of influence and interactions between the old and the new continent. "

    Among the most ancient holdings of Budapest's University Library are those remnants of the primitive book collection of the Hungarian Jesuitical University of Nagyszombat, now known as Trnava in Slovakia. Contained in this collection are volumes from several 16th century Jesuitical settlements in Hungarian territory not subdued by Turks following the battle of Mohács in 1526, transdanubian Hungary and Transylvania, only partially independent from the Ottoman Empire. The history of the Jesuitical educational institutes in these areas overlaps with the complex political and religious affairs of the region. The recovery of some 17th century catalogues and a study of provenance notes contained in the books themselves has permitted the realisation of a databank of this material, remarkably important for the history of Hungarian culture.

  • L-Poland, Cracow, Society of Jesu Scientific Library
    This library is housed in the Cracow college. A separate section, the so-called: Provincial Library was created within the Writers Library. In 1929, Father Stanislaw Bednarski (1896-1942) took upon himself to gather all old prints of all Society's chapter houses (with the exception of Chyrów), thereby creating the Malopolska Province of the Society of Jesus The collection consists of nearly 20,000 (30,000 volumes) of valuable Polish and foreign prints. Among others: a part of the Jozef Kalasanty Szaniawski's book collection (1764-1843), the books of old Jesuit Libraries in Austria, many rare old prints from Polocko, legal theses from old German universities, not to mention many jesuitica. In 1980, a section of manuscripts and drawings was created. Undoubtedly, an extremely valuable part of the Writers Library is the archival section of photocopies and microfilms regarding the history and the legacy of the Jesuits in Poland. These originate mostly from Roman Archives of the Society of Jesus (Archivum Romanum Societatis Iesu ARSI). Some manuscripts from the archive of the South Polish Province of the Society of Jesu, as well as other manuscripts from Polish archives and non-Jesuit libraries have been secured at this collection. Microfilms of personal files of Polish Jesuits stored at libraries in Austria, Sweden and Latvia complement this collection.

    JESUIT WORKS (religious)

    天主降生出像經解. 崇禎中刊.
          Preface dated 1637.
      存: 全. 一冊. Bodleian Library, Sinica 60 [SC 4002]. Cover has ms. note in Portuguese and dedication to William Thurston by P. Andre Xavier. This copy is more complete than the Douce copy, having preserved its original covers and IHS frontispiece; it is also printed on luxurious gold-flecked
          paper. After examining copies in Paris and Rome, Yuming Sun (Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Missouri) said "Sinica 60 is the best (and most precious) of all extant copies". YS.
      存: 全. 一冊. Bodleian Library, Douce Chin.d.6. This copy was brought to Europe by Fr. François Noël, S.J. and was lodged in a Jesuit residence in the Southern Low Countries (Lille, possibly). After the suppression of the Society of Jesus in 1777 it was auctioned and entered the private
          collection of Frans Korneel Cuypers de Rymenam in Brussels. This collection was auctioned in 1802 and the copy was acquired by Francis Douce. It passed to the Bodleian in 1834 along with the rest of his collection. NG.

      存: 全. 一冊. Bodleian Library, Sinica 65 [SC 1960 (G.17)].
      按: Work on gnomonics by the Italian Jesuit Sabatthinus de Ursis.

    天問略. 萬曆中刊(甲本).
          Perhaps the first edition of this work. AD. 周希令's preface lacks characters in lower 版心. After 王應能's 刻天文略題詞 there is 繼刻有表度說簡平義說幾何天文諸書. Also, there are 4 more plates before the main text, possibly being the earliest Chinese representations of European dials. SY.
      存: 全. 一冊. Bodleian Library, Sinica 66 [SC 1953 (G.9)].

    天問略. 萬曆中刊(乙本).
          From different blocks throughout, this is the more common edition of this work, and is perhaps the second edition. AD. Has 刻天文略題詞 by 王應能 dated 萬曆乙卯[1615]. 自序 also has this date. 周希令's preface has  旌德劉光暘刊 in lower 版心.
      存: 全. 一冊. Bodleian Library, Sinica 67 [SC 1960 (G.16)]. The covers are shorter than the text-block, and the front cover bears the printed label 幾何原本第六卷. The cover bears the Golius catalogue no.16, "Philosophia Chinensium, cum fig.", but Bernard changed this description to "Liber
          Geographicus Chinensis, cum fig." It is possible that the cover did indeed contain the text-block of 幾何原本 in the time of Golius, and that it subsequently became detached and was erroneously stitched on to this fascicle; Bernard, noting the discrepancy, may therefore have changed the
          description to a subject which vaguely matches the illustrations.  按: Ptolemaic astronomy by the Portuguese Jesuit Emmanuel Diaz.

    NOTE: [This is an excerpt of a] document [that] has been put together over a period of several decades. The original intention was simply to list all the Chinese books that were in the Bodleian Library by the end of the 17th century, many of which were imported as curiosities from Chinese communities in Southeast Asia by the Dutch East India Company at the very beginning of the century, and sold in Amsterdam. Often, they were split up, so that fascicles of the same copy can now be found in two or more different libraries. The late Professor Piet van der Loon estimated that the Bodleian Library has as much as a quarter (the largest single portion) of what may be termed this "Amsterdam corpus".

    Now, the list is serving as the basis for a survey not only of the entire corpus, but of all the Chinese books that were in Europe before the close
    of the 17th century. A number of scholars have added their discoveries and observations to it. Info: David Helliwell

    The Vatican Secret Archive [Archivio Segreto Vaticano] contains the documents concerning the central government of the Catholic Church. It is called "secret" because it is the private archive of the pontiff. He is its sole owner, establishing its norms and deciding whether to open it for consultation.

    Today, it can be consulted through the entire pontificate of Pius XI, meaning up until 1939. The next section to be opened, the one dealing with the pontificate of Pius XII, will give free access up until 1958, but a wide selection of documents from the years of the second world war has already been public for some time.

MacDonnell wrote in 2001, “He was considered an illustrious mathematician and astronomer; one to whom scholars and potentates would entrust with the most sensitive scientific problems of the day. Even so, he has yet to be given full credit for all of his scientific accomplishments.”  By making his work more accessible, this project is an attempt to give Christoph Clavius full credit.

His description of two Portuguese factories -- Sena on the Zambezi river and Mozambique Island -- is one of the most interesting and oldest Polish accounts of Africa. It is illustrated with five water-colours and two linedrawings by his own hand. The manuscript entitled "Cafraria, a P.M. Boym Polono Missa Mozambico 1644 Januario 11" is kept at the Archivum Romanum Societatis Iesu in Rome under the signature Goa 34-I, ff. 150-160. The text has never been edited in a scholarly way.

    This case is based on assertions that may at best be described as conjecture and is unfortunately reliant on circumstantial evidence, the same that can be said for all previous claims for alternative Shakespeares. The case put forward here is necessarily succinct and has not been elaborated upon in papers or books, for it seems presumptuous and indeed folly to devote too much time, energy and money to a theory that cannot be proved.

  • M-Missionaries and mandarins: Jesuits in China
    Rome not only collected the books from many foreign cultures; in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries it became the center of missionary enterprises that spanned the world. In China, Jesuits like Matteo Ricci and Adam Schall von Bell performed an incredible task of translation and interpretation. They learned the language; they made converts, some of high rank; and, in order to impress the cultivated Chinese elite with western forms of knowledge, they translated into Chinese the classical western science of cartography and the radically improved astronomy of Galileo. They also argued to their western superiors that Chinese classics had a core of values and tenets that matched those of Christianity. Eventually the Jesuits' openness to China led them into trouble; but for the first century and more of their mission, they did a remarkable job of bringing western forms of knowledge to China and Chinese forms of thought to the West. The Vatican preserves remarkable materials from both sides of this cultural exchange.

In 1705 the Jesuits installed a printing press. Under their supervision, the Nieremberg edition was printed by the Guarani Indians. With more than 40 copperplate engravings it is a masterpiece of early South American printing and the earliest surviving book printed in Argentine.(PDF-German)

We aim to show that faith is relevant to today’s culture and that God is already at work in it. Our work focuses on both sacred and secular issues because we’re convinced that God’s does too.

    Our guiding principle springs from the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola: write “as one friend speaks to another.” We write as we would speak to others in Jesuit community: funny while still serious, deeply profound and yet light and accessible.

    TJP is a project of Jesuits in formation. Nearly all of the contributors are not-yet-ordained Jesuits studying theology or philosophy, or working in our Jesuit ministries. Several recently ordained Jesuits also contribute to our work. On the whole, about 50 Jesuits are currently involved in the project.

  • M-USA, UW-Madison Memorial Libr. exhibit

    Jesuits and the Construction of Knowledge, 1540-1773 : exhibit  in Special collections, UW-Madison Memorial Library. 

    As missionaries, scholars, teachers, authors, and members of learned academies, members of the Society of Jesus exerted great influence on the world of early modern European learning. Though such activities attracted critique both thoughtful and scurrilous, the wide scope of Jesuit contributions to scholarship in fields from astronomy to zoology, from linguistics to music, invites re-examination. This exhibit, drawing on extensive holdings in Special Collections of illustrated works by Jesuit authors, explores their role in the construction of knowledge from the establishment of the Society of Jesus in 1540 through its papal suppression in 1773.

  • RC-**Germany, Mannheim - Digitalization of Travel Accounts from the Desbillons Collection

    Project „Digitalization of Travel Accounts from the Desbillons Collection

    Mannheim University Library (Germany), with the assistance of a grant by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, is digitizing travel accounts from the Debillons collection. These digitized texts are important resources especially for the history and cultural history of Latin America, North America and Asia during early modern history and the activities of the Jesuits in these countries.

    The Desbillons collection is the most important historic collection in the holdings of Mannheim University Library and represents the most comprehensive collection of 18th century French literature outside of France. The French Jesuit priest François-Joseph Terrasse Desbillons (1694 – 1778) left France in 1764 after the prohibition of his order and moved to Mannheim following an invitation by the elector Carl Theodor. He was well known to the contemporary audience as a writer of fables, considered himself an opponent of the enlightenment, and brought with him a large, continuously expanding collection of books to Mannheim. His collection comprises all fields of knowledge at that time and includes books about history as well as ethnography, theology, law and literature. The conveyed titles reflect the Jesuit activities outside of Europe.

    The Jesuit Archives in Canada are presently undertaking the next phase in the digitalisation of some very precious documents. The twelve manuscripts deal with language tools, and texts written by the Jesuits in the native languages of the First Nations of the 17th and 18th c.  These dictionnaries, grammars, tables of conjugation and religious texts in several native amerindian languages will permit researchers to better understand the cultures and languages of these North-American First Nations. These documents equally testify to the role played by the Society of Jesus in saveguarding the amerindian languages and its archives.

    Les Archives des jésuites au Canada entreprennent présentement la prochaine phase d’un projet de numérisation qui leur permettra de mettre en ligne certains de leurs documents les plus précieux. Les douze manuscrits concernés sont des outils de langues et des textes créés par les jésuites dans les langues des Premières nations aux 17e et 18e siècles. Ces dictionnaires, grammaires, tableaux de conjugaisons et écrits religieux en plusieurs langues amérindiennes permettront aux chercheurs de mieux comprendre les cultures et les langues des Premières nations d’Amérique du Nord.

    The project, sponsored by a.o. the Centre Sèvres, UPX (Nanterre), the University of Waterloo and the Canada Research Council, aims at digitising all of this material.

    Any feedback on this project and on the content of this letters is welcome in the mailbox of prof. Guy Poirier.

  • RC-Jesuits and China

    Christianity in China. Western Culture in front of the Far East. Adaptionism, Syncretism and Simulation. The specific case of a small and important group of French Jesuits: the Figurists.

    Project context and objectives

    We know that the literature produced by Jesuits in China, and their brethren's 'bricolage' in Europe created the myth that China had higher ethics and morals than Europe. China slowly made its way in enlightenment and libertine thought, as evidenced by a virtuous society of atheists. Such presumed Chinese atheism fed the debate on morality not depending upon religion. In France and Europe, the Jesuits' histories of China were then used by libertine authors in writings on religious tolerance, freedom of speech, human rights, and a new interpretation of world history. This debate is still valid today when democratic societies are represented as a post-secular society in which the process of secularisation seems to be stopping or in which people discuss around the origin and roots of their social system. The impact of the 'discovery' of China could be considered as an anticipation of today's discussion topic about religions and their role in society and atheism as an alternative European tradition. A recent manifestation at the National Mall, in Washington DC, proposed the question in in present-day terms: atheist and secular Americans gathered for a rally where they celebrated their lack of religious affiliations.

    My research is focused on how the Jesuits initially 'constructed' China for the Europeans, and were the first to use the word 'atheism' for part of the Chinese people's religion, with substantial changes during the course of their mission, from Matteo Ricci to the Jesuit intellectual, currently known as 'Figurism'. Later on, they fought strenuously against the European idea that used 'China' as a synonym of 'atheism'. In other words, the Jesuits first described as atheist some aspects of Chinese culture - adopting categories of atheism established by the tradition of the Fathers of the Church - and subsequently they defended China from the accusation of atheism. In so doing, they contributed the parameters for a new and more sophisticated definition of atheism, relative to idolatry and superstition - terms that were often used to qualify the religious systems encountered during the discovery of the New Worlds.

    Atheism, it seems, is a feature or symptom of the modernity that is traumatically coming to birth. If theism is one of the certainties that European modern society is losing, then atheism is one of those certainties it is attempting to acquire. In this sense, atheism is an inescapable aspect of modernity; atheism and modernity seem to be inextricably linked.

    With the construction and 'invention' of a different atheism, the Jesuits defended their mission in China and their decision to relate ancient or contemporary Confucianism to Christianism. Their many defensive weapons soon included a propaganda that examined how the accusations of atheism made against China influenced European atheism. Should China be officially condemned for its atheism, European atheists could have gleefully claimed that a virtuous society could exist without religion. But defending a common source for Christianism and Confucianism would sever Confucianism from Spinozism, save the Jesuits' mission in China and halt the progress of moral atheism in Europe.

  • RC-project Pia desideria

    The Religious Emblem Tradition in the Low Countries in the Light of Herman Hugo's Pia desideria

    The development of the love emblem in the Netherlands, from c. 1600 onwards, can be seen a as manifestation of the successful literary relationship between the northern and southern part of the Low Countries. The heyday of love emblems also brought the publication of several volumes containing both emblems and songs. Hooft's Emblemata amatoria is one example (with 71 pages devoted to emblems and 73 to songs and sonnets), but also the less ambitiously published Cupido's lusthof (Cupid's Garden of Delight) of 1613. Combination volumes like these allowed for optimal social use.
    In 1615 the love emblem acquired a new dimension with the publication of Vaenius's Amoris divini emblemata, a free adaptation of his previously published Amorum emblemata. Religious love emblematics was thereafter to a large extent influenced by Cats's Sinne- en minnebeelden (first published in 1618) and by Hugo's Pia desideria (1624). Hugo's Pia desideria would become the most influential emblem book published after Alciato's Emblematum liber (1531): the book was reprinted 49 times, and 90 translations and adaptations were published all over Europe.
    Yet, the relationship between the profane love emblems, Vaenius's Amoris divini emblemata en Hugo's Pia desideria have never been studied systematically, although some partial efforts were made. The way in which the Pia desideria was used to help shape and form the Contra-Reformation in the South, as well as the way in which these emblems manifested themselves in the North have not been the focus of recent research. The 'Pia Desideria Project' is aiming to change this situation by publishing:

    • a doctorate thesis on the position and role of the Pia desideria in the South (by Lien Roggen, supervised by Marc van Vaeck)
    • a doctorate thesis on its role in the North (by Feike Dietz, supervised by Arie Gelderblom and Els Stronks, titled 'Emblematic Dynamics in the Seventeenth Century: Word, Image, Religion' )

  • RC-The Jesuit mission at the Mughal court (1580-1773)

    European Representations of India and Islam: The Jesuit mission at the Mughal court (1580-1773)

    Research project at the UNIVERSITAT POMPEU FABRA (Barcelona) [2013-2017]

    The goal of this 48 months proposal is to contribute to a comprehensive understanding of the ways Islam and the Mughal Empire were interpreted and represented in Europe during the early modern period. The chronological delimitation of the subject of this project includes the late sixteenth-century, and the whole seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. This period corresponds to the end of the Portuguese monopoly on the sea route to India, the arrival of the English, Dutch and French companies in Asia, the great missionary experiences of the Jesuits in Asia, the expansion and decline of the Mughal Empire in India, the Enlightenment and the emergence of Indology and Orientalism as academic disciplines. The applicant is a specialist on the European presence in India during the early modern period. Although this project starts in that disciplinary field, one of its aims is to develop a distinctive historiographical approach based on a systematic interaction with disciplines such as anthropology and sociology, by adopting a conceptual framework based on the concepts of ‘contact zone’ and ‘go-between’. Through this interdisciplinary approach, this project aims to contribute to the current debates on Orientalism and Islam.

    Jesuit Historiography Online (JHO) is an Open Access resource offering over seventy historiographical essays written by experts in their field. Aimed at scholars of Jesuit history and at those in all overlapping areas, the essays in JHO provide summaries of key texts from the earlier literature, painstaking surveys of more recent work, and digests of archival and online resources. Crucially, the scope of the essays is global: they cover both Anglophone and non-Anglophone sources and scholarship from Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. The result is much more than a bibliographical check-list: authors explore trends in Jesuit historiography and provide a nuanced, systematic, and in-depth analysis of what has been written—when, why, and by whom—about arguably the most prolific, diverse, and wide-ranging religious order within the Roman Catholic tradition. JHO is available in Open Access thanks to generous support from the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies at Boston College.

The School of Theology has had an unbroken history at Milltown ever since 1889, and became a Jesuit Pontifical Faculty in 1932. The School of Philosophy moved from Milltown in 1930 and became a Jesuit Pontifical Faculty in 1948, and returned to Milltown in 1966.

  • USA-**Republic of Letters (Kircher)

    Before email, faculty meetings, international colloquia, and professional associations, the world of scholarship relied on its own networks: networks of correspondence that stretched across countries and continents; the social networks created by scientific academies; and the physical networks brought about by travel. These networks were the lifelines of learning, from the age of Erasmus to the age of Franklin. They facilitated the dissemination -and the criticism- of ideas, the spread of political news, as well as the circulation of people and objects.

    But what did these networks actually look like? Were they as extensive as we are led to believe? How did they evolve over time? Mapping the Republic of Letters, in collaboration with international partners, seeks to answer these and other questions through the development of sophisticated, interactive visualization tools. It also aims to create a repository for metadata on early-modern scholarship, and guidelines for future data capture.
