Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

Electronic Enlightenment (EE) is an unparalleled, evolving resource that brings the past to life, allowing students and scholars alike to explore both the relationships and the movement of ideas in the early modern period through its web of correspondence. This vast online searchable collection of inter-connected letters and documents range from the 17th to the 20th centuries, giving you unprecedented access to the first global social network!

A research project of the Bodleian Libraries (University of Oxford), EE makes available over 69,000, often previously unpublished, letters and documents between more than 8,000 correspondents. From Addison and Bentham, to Frederick the Great and Voltaire, EE provides detailed information on the private conversations and thoughts of a wide range of both 'great' and lesser-known figures.

By treating every correspondent - not only the "great men" - as someone significant, EE reveals the existence of the myriad unknown and ignored figures of the period and raises questions about their place in history, challenging the traditional concept of the "Enlightenment" as the preserve of philosophers.

International in scope, EE covers over 50 nationalities with letters often provided in their original language including English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Swedish, and Russian, as well as Latin and Greek.

EE is more than an "electronic bookshelf" of isolated texts: it is a network of interconnected documents that allows you to see the complex web of personal relationships in the early modern period and the creation of the modern world.
