Electronic Enlightenment — letters & lives online
. . . reconnecting the first global social network!
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”.
A subscription to EE will give you immediate access to 63,968 historical documents. Listen in on the first global social network as 8,008 historical figures discuss everything from religious tolerance to animal rights, vulcanology to classical archeology, economic modelling to celebrity culture.
