Abstract

abstract:

This article provides a first inventory of the extant correspondence of Elisabeth of Bohemia (1618–1680). Elisabeth, best known today for her extensive exchange of letters with René Descartes, corresponded throughout her lifetime with family members, scientists, philosophers, politicians, and learned men and women from various European countries. The main aim of this article is to stimulate philosophical and historical research on Elisabeth of Bohemia by providing an inventory of her correspondence that enables researchers to investigate Elisabeth's thought on philosophical, scientific, political, and religious matters in a broader and more comprehensive way.
