Description
Abstract (cited)
The 1641 Depositions (Trinity College Dublin, MSS 809-841) are witness testimonies mainly by Protestants, but also by some Catholics, from all social backgrounds, concerning their experiences of the 1641 Irish rebellion. The testimonies document the loss of goods, military activity, and the alleged crimes committed by the Irish insurgents, including assault, stripping, imprisonment and murder. This body of material is unparalleled anywhere in early modern Europe, and provides a unique source of information for the causes and events surrounding the 1641 rebellion and for the social, economic, cultural, religious, and political history of seventeenth-century Ireland, England and Scotland.

The 1641 Depositions Project aims to conserve, digitise, transcribe and make the depositions available online in a fully TEI compliant format. 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.
