Alice Thornton was buried 1 February 1707. For the 317th anniversary of her burial, followed - on 13 February – by the 398th anniversary of her birth, we have a new post looking back at her life through items held at a variety of archives and libraries in England and Ireland. We hope you enjoy this run through Alice Thornton's life and its documentary traces. https://thornton.kdl.kcl.ac.uk/posts/blog/2024-02-01-AnniversaryBlog/

"At the height of the Thirty Years War, news from South America, West Africa and the Caribbean was widespread and quickly distributed in the central European peripheries of the early modern Atlantic world. Despite the German retreat from sixteenth-century colonial experiments, overseas reports sometimes appeared in remote southern German towns before they were printed in Spain or the Low Countries."

We're down to our top two most read blog posts as we count down to 2024! Last year, my piece about finding two missing Alice Thornton manuscripts was in the very top spot. This year it's at number 2.

"Finally, basing our discussion in part on an examination of the reading marks that Newton left in the surviving copies of Hebrew grammars and lexicons that he owned, we will argue that his interest in Hebrew was not intended to achieve linguistic proficiency but remained limited to particular theological queries of singular concern."

"Our understanding of early modern empire construction can thus be reshaped through an analysis that looks beyond intellectual, political and administrative origins towards the people who actually undertook the project of colonization. On the colonial frontier, we see European empires adopting military recruitment strategies from Europe — including forced conscription, convict transportation and a reliance on vagabonds and other ‘undesirables’ — yet the unique environment of the frontier changed the nature of this military service."

"In the 1650s, two professors of philosophy at the University of Utrecht defended atomism. Interestingly, one of them, Johannes de Bruyn, is considered to be a staunch Cartesian, while the other, Daniel Voet, was a neo-Aristotelian and strongly opposed to Descartes’s philosophy. This article examines this curious situation and analyses the theories of both professors."
