Thanks to a British Academy Small Grant, dr. Jan Machielsen is working on Monumenta Bellarmini, adding metadata to the Roberto Bellarmino correspondence. This work is part of a larger research project in which Dr. Machielsen is studying the discussion about Classic authors within scholarly correspondences of late 16th and early 17th centuries. The project will make online available on Early Modern Letters Online (EMLO) all the metadata about these correspondence and, in the case of Bellarmino, will add links to the letters transcribed on GATE.
