The Bodin Project
The Bodin Project is a non-profit operation the aim of which is to make available on-line materials to facilitate study and research and so to enhance knowledge and understanding of Jean Bodin, a pivotal figure in the history of sixteenth-century Europe, and especially the history of ideas. Regularly augmented, these materials include
- a brief biography of Bodin
- contemporary editions of his principal publications, in .pdf format
- links to other sites relevant to Bodinian and related studies
- the ‘Bodin Sources Index’ compiled by Professor Kenneth D. McRae and his team
- copy of the Bibliographie critique des editions anciennes de Jean Bodin compiled by Professor Roland Crahay and his associates
- an on-going bibliography of post-2000 publications in the field.
This site is one of the outputs of a research programme, funded by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council, on ‘The Reception of Bodin’.
