Medici Archive Project Offers Easy Access for Scholars

Letters from the Medici Archive are being made available online by the Medici Archive Project. The archive of the Medici Family has been called "the most complete record of any princely regime in Renaissance and Baroque Europe." Now selected pieces from the collection of nearly three million letters will be available for study online. Included on the site will be a Document of the Month, which may be viewed along with an essay detailing the provenance and importance of the piece. The site also has searching capabilities.
