The Jonathan Edwards Center and Online Archive

Jonathan Edwards (1703–1758), Yale graduate, pastor, revivalist, philosopher, missionary, and college president, is the subject of intense interest because of his significance as a historical figure and the profound legacy he left not only on America’s, but the world’s, religious and intellectual landscapes. The Jonathan Edwards Online Archive provides a comprehensive database of Edwards’s writings ( that serves the needs of researchers and readers. The Edwards Online Archive is housed within the Jonathan Edwards Center at YDS, the most prestigious center for scholarship on Jonathan Edwards and related topics. Staff members assist numerous scholars of Edwards and American religion every year and provide adaptable, authoritative resources and reference works to the many scholars, secondary school and college-level teachers, seminarians, pastors, churches, and interested members of the general public who approach Edwards from many different perspectives. The center also encourages research and dialogue through its international affiliates on four continents, publications, fellowships, lectures, workshops, and conferences.

The director of the Jonathan Edwards Center is Kenneth P. Minkema, who is supported by a team of student editorial assistants. To contact the office, call 203.432.5341, or email
