Brown Bag Lunch: "A Visit to Jonathan Edwards' Study"
Jonathan Edwards wrote some of the most brilliant books of his time — but the actual production of those books from start to finish was a huge achievement, too. How did an eighteenth-century Congregational pastor, living in the wilds of western Massachusetts, get the paper, the writing space, the library, and the right contacts with publishers in order to become an internationally known author?
Ken Minkema, director of the Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale Divinity School, will walk us through the "material culture" of Edwards' Northampton study, providing a fascinating glimpse of the place where ground-breaking theology was written.
