1641 Depositions

The 1641 DEPOSITIONS Project created a fully searchable digital edition of the 1641 Depositions at Trinity College Dublin Library, comprising transcripts and images of all 8,000 depositions, examinations and associated materials in which Protestant men and women of all classes told of their experiences following the outbreak of the rebellion by the Catholic Irish in October, 1641. The project began in 2007 and finished in September 2010. The Ulster Depositions were published online in December 2009, see http://www.tcd.ie/history/1641/ and the remaining provinces were published end September 2010. The Irish Manuscripts Commission will publish a hard copy of the 1641 Depositions in 12 volumes.

In its most recent phase, the corpus has been used for the development of a unique set of resources for education: see: http://1641.tcd.ie/learning/
