Widely considered the United States’s foremost theologian and philosopher, Jonathan Edwards was a leader in the 18th-century Great Awakening and remains a pivotal figure in the nation's history. His sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,” is considered a seminal work of literature, and his collected works remain central to the study of religion in and history of the United States. The NEH has partnered with the Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale University since 2008 in an effort to make Edwards’ writings freely available to the public. The partnership has produced a searchable, online database of Edwards’ work, including digitized versions of Yale University Press’s 26-volume collection, The Works of Jonathan Edwards, and 47 additional online volumes of previously unpublished writings and documents.
