Abstract

The correspondences of Dr Richard Pococke and his cousin Jeremiah Milles, tracing in detail their eighteenth century travels through Europe and the Orient, have been previously overlooked in historiographical terms. Rachel Finnegan’s article brings these letters to life, charting the personal and professional lives of these two clergymen, revealing the disparate range of subjects dealt with in their correspondences and thereby highlighting the potential value of these documents as historical sources.
