Unraveling JE with Visual Edwards Software

The idea behind the Visual Edwards project is to visualize the writings and thought of Jonathan Edwards in a creative way which facilitates exploration, study, and presentation. The sophisticated, image-rich theology of Edwards is a perfect match for today’s visual and tech-driven culture.

Background to Visual Edwards

This video gives a brief background to the development of Visual Edwards software. This is a research tool to help unravel Edwards’ “Miscellanies.” The second volume of The Miscellanies Project is currently underway. Topic approval deadline for The Miscellanies Companion, Volume 2 is June 1, 2020. Check topic availability at the Call for Papers page.
