VMs: Catalogus Neerlandicarum Epistularum
I have just learned about the database of Dutch letters (as in
the subject) which apparently contains information about
800,000 letters written after 1600:
The site is password protected (so probably paid) but perhaps
someone has access to it? It is in Amsterdam, if I understand
I thought there might be some letters to/from some of our
Bohemian friends - especially as the Low Countries became
the home of Bohemian Brethren after White Mountain - and
there were many scholars (such as Comenius) among them.
Even though the 17th c. VMS history is strongly connected
with the counter-reformation and Jesuits, the "Republic of
Letters" was to a certain extent above religious differences.
