New Archives Exhibit: Letters of Jonathan Edwards
The Wheaton College Archives & Special Collections of Buswell Memorial Library has mounted a new exhibit, titled “Jonathan Edwards: Puritan, Preacher, Philosopher.”
The exhibit is based on a collection of 16 letters related to Jonathan Edwards, noted theologian and prominent figure of the Great Awakening.
These original letters were written between 1752 and 1756. They were previously held by the Rhode Island Historical Society. The exhibit, placed on deposit at the Wheaton College Special Collections through the generosity of Brian and Sally Oxley, is on display through May 2013.
The Wheaton College Archives & Special Collections is located on the third floor of the Billy Graham Center, at 500 College Avenue in Wheaton, and is open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. For more information, call 630.752.5705.
