Marsh’s Library houses important collections of early-modern European, British, and Irish books and manuscripts.
The library has often been examined in the context of one or more of the four men (Edward Stillingfleet, Elias Bouhereau, Narcissus Marsh and John Stearne) whose collections constitute our founding bequests. Much work remains to be done on these scholars of European significance, but Marsh’s Library also invites research proposals which consider our rich holdings across a number of themes. These themes include, but are not restricted to:
Travel literature and ethnography
The history of readership and ownership
Annotations, marginalia and ephemera
Concepts of science and scientific endeavour
Religious conflict, toleration and sectarianism
The growth of polemic
Censure and censorship
