Jonathan Edwards Center announces monograph series featuring new research from young and international scholars.

NEW HAVEN, CT—The Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale Divinity School announces the initiation of a new monograph series, “New Directions in Jonathan Edwards Studies,” to be published by the German academic press, Vanderhoeck and Ruprecht.

The series, under the co-editorship of Harry Stout, Kenneth Minkema and Adriaan Neele, aims to publish studies that represent significant advances in scholarship on Jonathan Edwards’ life, time, influences, legacies and related topics with a focus on, but not limited to, the work of young scholars.

Harry Stout, the general editor of the series and of the Jonathan Edwards Center, commented, “This is the first series of its kind devoted exclusively to new and innovative work on Edwards. We are eager to make these studies available to the world.”

Scholarly work on Edwards, not to mention his popular appeal, is now international; more theses and dissertations on Edwards are now being produced outside of the United States than within it. This trend is thanks in part to the network of affiliate centers that the JEC-Yale has established over the past several years, hosted at institutions in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Germany, Hungary, Illinois, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, and South Africa. It is the hope of the JEC-Yale that this series will serve audiences in both academia and the churches. 

The new series will build on JEC-Yale’s digital research environment, Works of Jonathan Edwards Online, which presents all of Edwards’s writings in a searchable online database, along with helpful editorial materials, to facilitate critical study by scholars from around the world.
