Series

Amsterdam Studies in the Dutch Golden Age

This book series is published by Amsterdam University Press in collaboration with the Amsterdam Centre for the Study of the Golden Age, which aims to promote the history and culture of the Dutch Republic during the ‘long’ seventeenth century (c. 1560-1720).

The publications provide insight into the lively diversity and continuing relevance of the Dutch Golden Age. They offer original studies on a wide variety of topics, ranging from Rembrandt to Vondel, from Beeldenstorm (iconoclastic fury) to Ware Vrijheid (True Freedom) and from Batavia to New Amsterdam. Politics, religion, culture, economics, expansion and warfare all come together in the Centre’s interdisciplinary setting.

The series editors are international scholars specialised in seventeenth-century history, art and literature.
