Jonathan Edwards' Papers Reunited After 150 Years

The New Haven Register has published an article (Monday, Sept. 18, 2017) about the joining of Andover Newton and Yale Divinity Schools' libraries. One implication of the transition is that the papers of pioneering 18th-century minister Jonathan Edwards will be reunited under one roof for the first time in 150 years.

“This represents the beginning of what will be a really fruitful partnership between Andover Newton and Yale, and for scholars it’s a real boon, because for the first time in a century and a half the materials have all been reunited,” Yale Divinity School Library Director Stephen Crocco told the newspaper.

“It’s a rare opportunity to be able to combine two libraries from the early 19th century,” he said. Yale Divinity School and Andover Newton's two parent schools “played a significant role in the early republic and (the modern schools) continue to play a role through the 19th century to the present day.”
