‘Digital Boyle’

Published in Uncategorized

The vast riches of Boyle’s archive are being showcased through the Irish Research Council-funded ‘Digital Boyle’ project (2014) at UCC. This will present images of key documents from the earl’s papers in an interactive display to be exhibited in the coming months at suitable locations. Manuscript images will be placed alongside transcriptions of texts, including Boyle’s memoir (the ‘True Remembrances’, written in 1632) and estate records. Besides opening a window onto the career of one of the most significant figures of early modern Ireland, the exhibit will also serve an educational purpose, providing an introduction to the handwriting and manuscript culture of the period.
