Perhaps best known for his role in the spiritual "Great Awakening" that swept through the American colonies in the middle of the 18th century, Jonathan Edwards also served (briefly) as the president of Princeton and is generally regarded as an important American theologian. This rather thorough collection of his sermons and theological writings has been compiled by Mark Trigsted, and will be a great boon to persons working in the field of American social and religious history. Visitors will want to first look at the chronology of Edwards life, which contains hyperlinks to some of his most influential writings and sermons and a number of biographical sketches culled from different sources. His writings are divided into various sections on the site, including those dealing with science, theology, and religious revivals. The site concludes with a nice bibliography that contains recent publications dealing with Edwards, conference proceedings, and books on the Great Awakening.
