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.
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.
Students and scholars are now invited to contribute essays for publication in The Miscellanies Companion, Volume 2, Foreword by Kenneth P. Minkema, Executive Director of the Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale University.
