Ideas and Practices, 1300–1850

Ideas and Practices, 1300–1850 is a book series focusing on the era in which long-familiar ways thinking about politics, religion, society and the natural world transformed fundamentally. The series offers a venue for scholars to publish ambitious works in intellectual history which explain –– or question –– that transformation, sometimes characterised as ‘the crisis of the European mind’. Its coverage stretches from the medieval period into the nineteenth century, so that different perspectives and explanations can be brought to bear on this pivotal moment in the history of Western intellectual life. The series encourages submissions in political thought, political economy, theology and religious belief, natural philosophy, scholarship and literature in Europe and across the Mediterranean and Atlantic worlds. Ideas and Practices, 1300–1850 will focus primarily on monographs, including translations of works into English. It will also publish scholarly editions of important texts not readily available, as well as the occasional high-quality collection of essays.
