Title: Session title: “Digitizing Early New England Religion”; paper title: "The Jonathan Edwards Online Archive and Sources on Native American Missions”
Author: Kenneth P. Minkema
Abstract: Interest in Jonathan Edwards has reached an all-time high, as reflected in the continuous flow of books, articles, theses and dissertations on him, but also in the use of his works online. This presentation will briefly survey the development of the Edwards Center’s website and online archive, then describe new texts being prepared for publication, with a special focus on those related to Native Americans and missions. Key to the growth of work on Edwards is the network of affiliate centers around the world, community-sourcing projects, the creation of educational resources, and other outreach methods that encourage engagement with Edwards’s writings, times, and legacy.

“Writing the Dead: Death & Memory in the Edwards Family in the Early Eighteenth Century,” (Film/TV/Video Broadcast or Recording)
Title: “Writing the Dead: Death & Memory in the Edwards Family in the Early Eighteenth Century,”
Writer: Kenneth P. Minkema
Director: Douglas A. Sweeney
Producer: Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
Abstract: This essay focuses on several instances of death and memorialization within two generations of the Edwardses in eighteenth-century New England, namely, the families of Timothy Edwards, born in 1669, and of his son Jonathan, who both died in the same year, 1758. Attitudes about death and separation reveal much about father, son, and their extended families, attitudes qualified by age, gender, and other factors, and suggesting wider and richer possibilities for post-puritan religious culture.
