All Souls College has a long and distinguished record in the study of history, and many current and former Fellows, as well as Visiting Fellows and Lecturers, either do historical research or have extensive interests in history. The College provides Fellowships for the holders of several University posts in the subject. The Chichele Professors of the History of War, of Medieval History, and of Economic History are Fellows of the College, and the Fellowship also includes a Professor of Economic History. The research of Fellows and Visiting Fellows is supported by the holdings of the College Library, which has a particularly fine collection of books on the history of France, and military history, as well extensive materials for the study of Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages.

Seminar in Early Modern Intellectual History

As always, this year’s iteration of the Seminar in Early Modern Intellectual History will consist of papers on a wide range of subjects: philosophy, science, scholarship, religion, politics, and the social setting of early modern intellectual life. While we had hoped to run the seminar in hybrid format, it will initially commence as an online only event, hosted on Zoom (it is possible that we will switch to a hybrid format in Trinity term).
