Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment

The Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment series, previously known as SVEC (Studies on Voltaire and the Eighteenth Century), has published over 500 peer-reviewed scholarly volumes since 1955 as part of the Voltaire Foundation at the University of Oxford. International in focus, the volumes cover wide-ranging aspects of the eighteenth century and the Enlightenment, from gender studies to political theory, and from economics to visual arts and music, and are published in English or French. Available in print from Liverpool University Press and as a digital collection, following are innovative digital projects published in the series.

University of Liverpool Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts

This collection showcases four of the highlights of the University of Liverpool’s medieval and renaissance manuscript collections. These four fully digitised manuscripts - an English literary text, a Book of Hours, a service book and a portolan chart - demonstrate a diversity of forms and features of interest to students of manuscript studies and medieval culture. When seen in the context of the collections from which they derive, they are also a witness to the cultural and educational life of Liverpool from the late nineteenth century onwards. The University's collection in particular reflects the taste and aspirations of the City's wealthy benefactors, and the generosity of the families wishing to commemorate their lives.
