A collection of notable individuals of the Early Modern era, with short descriptions and/or bios, links, and other resources gradually being added as time allows.

Every entry has (at a minimum) an image of the person (if available), country, born/active/died info, a short bio and a link to Wikipedia (or other outside resource). Adding additional links, images and notes is ongoing, as well as including ties into the CS Timeline, Dictionary citations and Quotations info. A Contemporaries feature displays other people Active during the life of each person (who has Active dates set).

This is a work-in-progress: different categories are in different stages of development and each entry will become more complete as more info is gathered...we hope you find it useful!
