This project will examine the changing meanings of 'addiction' across the early modern period, from the translation of classical ideas, through to the emergence of a modern addiction model. It will look at court records, sermons, medical texts and literature to establish how source and medium affected meaning, and examine overall patterns and changes within the context of ideas and events in early modern England.
