Collection ID: 
2014-47

The theological papers reveal an extraordinary and unfamiliar side of Isaac Newton and contribute to a fuller understanding of his character, his religious views, and his interaction with society and the world around him in 17th and 18th century England. The papers shed new light on Newton's mystic and apocalyptic interests, and show that he was as original and radical a religious thinker as he was a scientist. They add a significant and valuable body of knowledge to the study of European intellectual and religious history, as well as to the history of science.
