nLab localization of an enriched category

Given a symmetric closed monoidal category VV, a VV-enriched category AA with underlying ordinary category A 0A_0 and a subcategory Σ\Sigma of A 0A_0 containing the identities of A 0A_0, H. Wolff defines the corresponding theory of localizations.

While Wolff in principle defines localizations more generally, most of the theory is developed for reflective localizations, i.e. when the counit of the 2-adjunction is iso of VV-categories. For such a VV-enriched category CC,

consider reflective VV-localizations which preserve finite limits of the enriched category of presheaves [C op,V][C^{op},V], and relate them to an enriched version of Grothendieck topology on CC, and to a “universal closure operation” on [C op,V][C^{op},V]. See also under enriched sheaf.
