A Creative Leap from Zero to One and a Call for Papers

Development on the Visual Edwards Project continues apace with some significant advances, including the ability to combine separate and even disparate visualizations to create a much larger view of Jonathan Edwards’s thought, live reference links to WJEO which track current and cumulative references, and new style options. As a confluence of theology, technology, and art, the Visual Edwards Project leverages state of the art methodology to lift the exploration of Edwards’s writings into a new and dynamic domain.
