Abstract

Edinburgh’s Enlightenment 1680-1750’ is a site which presents the digital resources of the Royal Society of Edinburgh funded project, ‘Allan Ramsay and Edinburgh in the First Age of Enlightenment’. The Principal Investigator of the project is Professor Murray Pittock and the research team are drawn from the universities of Glasgow, Ghent, Manchester and Temple, the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery and the National Galleries of Scotland. The project is inter and transdisciplinary, comprising textual editors, literary critics, cultural historians, political historians and experts on the history of art and music. The project’s aim is twofold: to provide some of the materials which support a comprehensive biography of the city of Edinburgh in 1680-1750, and to scope the development of a full textual edition of the works of one of its most central figures, Allan Ramsay.
