Eoin Devlin is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow in the Faculty of History, University of Cambridge. He was previously a student at University College Dublin and Trinity College, Dublin before completing his PhD at Cambridge. His current research focuses on Anglo-European social and cultural exchange in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth century, and English responses to baroque culture. As part of this project he is investigating British ambassadorial correspondence held by the Beinecke. Eoin teaches early modern British and European history, and is currently working on his first book, a study of James II's relationship with the popes in the 1680s and 1690s.
