The Dublin Medico-Philosophical Society was established by John Rutty, Charles Smith and others in 1756. It was a small, self-funded and self-selecting learned society, which met on a bi-monthly basis to present and discuss medical and scientific papers on new and improving subjects. This article examines the society and its connection to an Enlightenment and a cosmopolitan Republic of Letters. It investigates the society’s inauguration, membership, ideology and aims and considers how information was collected, produced and disseminated by its members. It proposes that the society was an improvement society, that wanted to improve Ireland by advancing organized learning and harnessing practical knowledge for the betterment of the nation. It contends that the society was a band of virtuosi, a talented and influential group of surgeons, physicians, apothecaries and clerics, who utilized the methodological and empirical approaches of the Enlightenment. It concludes that the Enlightenment was not only in Ireland but that Ireland, or more correctly Dublin, in the form of the Dublin Medico-Philosophical Society and its Irish scientific Republic of Letters, was also participating in the Enlightenment.

His intended readership reflects a spectrum of religious positions, including outspoken Catholics, Lutherans, and Calvinists: The conservative Hungarian archbishop Nicolaus Oláh could thus find himself in the company of the Reformed martyr Peter Ramus. Clearly, Sambucus did not select the dedicatees for their religious preferences, but rather for their social credit and potential patronage. Sambucus’s book was published at the end of an extensive peregrinatio academica, just before his return to the Habsburg court. The dedications help to present the author as a well-connected member of the Republic of Letters, someone who could usefully serve the Emperor as a scholar and cultural agent. 46
The objective of the attached proposal is to amend the Agreement establishing an association between the European Economic Community and Malta, which was signed on 5 December 1970 and entered into force on 1 April 1971, by concluding an Agreement in the form of an Exchange of Letters between the European Community and the Republic of Malta. The Exchange of Letters is aimed at repealing the tariff ceilings for textile products laid down in Article 2 of Annex I to the Association Agreement, as amended by Article 5 of the Additional Protocol to the Agreement establishing an association between the EEC and Malta, signed on 27 October 1977. Notwithstanding the ceilings provided for in Article 2 of Annex I to the Association Agreement, by common agreement between the contracting parties until 31 December 1997 Malta’s exports to the EC falling under textile category 6 were imported into the EU free of customs duties up to certain quota levels, representing an increase in liberalisation of imports of textiles from Malta as compared to the Association Agreement provisions. The parties’ agreement to this effect was reflected in a Memorandum of Understanding initialled on 29 November 1990, as last extended until 31 December 1997 by an Agreed Minute between the Republic of Malta and the European Community regarding textile trade 1 .
