Electronic Enlightenment

Electronic Enlightenment is a 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, to reconstruct one of the world's great historical “conversations”. It includes over 60,000 historical documents representing an exchange between 8000 historical figures on subjects including religion, science, economics, society and culture.
