Reconstructing Mazarin's Library / Libraries in Time and Space Sources, Tools and Hypotheses

Abstract : The author launched a project to virtually reconstruct the two successive libraries of Cardinal Mazarin in Paris. The first, maybe the largest book collection of the western world at that time (from 40,000 to 56,000 books), which was scattered during the Fronde in 1652; the second, which had been developed from 1653 and had been settled in a long gallery newly built in Mazarin's palace, of which very few architectural elements remain today. The digital edition and the analysis of the seventeenth-century inventories are combined with research on the history of the Palais Mazarin, to better know the development, content, arrangement and transmission of the library.
