The Coppet Group

The Groupe de Coppet is possibly the most influential network of writers, philosophers, politicians, scientists and artists in the early 19th century - centered around Madame de Staël and Benjamin Constant. This project aims to trace all the visitors to the Château de Coppet and thus the people that were directly within the group's sphere of influence. An estimated 600 people came to Coppet for a short or longer stay, in the 1803-1817 timeframe (from Mme. de Staël's exile from Paris til her death). Stendhal called this informal group the "states-general of European opinion" (états généraux de l’opinion européenne).
