The home page for the J. R. Ritman Library (Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica) provides information about the library's collections and activities. This private library (unaffiliated to any university or other institution, but freely accessible to the public) houses materials relating to the Hermetic-Christian tradition (Hermeticism is a set of religious and philosophical beliefs based on a body of writings attributed to the mythical philosopher and alchemist, Hermes Trismegistus). Topics covered include: alchemy; mysticism; Rosicrucianism; and Hermetic philosophy. It is possible to search the library's catalogue online, and a digitisation project is underway, although at time of review the works were not yet available via the website. The site also offers a series of articles on subjects relating to the Hermetic tradition, a bibliography of other relevant works, and access to the library's online exhibitions.
This Dutch-language web page introduces the Spinoza House Association and the houses in their possession. These consist of a cottage in Rijnsburg, in which the rationalist philosopher Benedict de Spinoza (1632-1677) lived and worked from 1661 to 1663, and the house in which he died, located in the Hague. The Rijnsburg house has been converted into a public museum, with Spinoza's library recreated and other period adornments. The property in The Hague hosts the Association's library, consisting mostly of nineteenth and twentieth century works about Spinoza. These may be consulted by appointment. The website also provides a bibliography of the Association's publications, news and information on events of interest to Spinoza scholars, and links to selected other Spinoza sites on the Web.
