An exceptionally rare and important complete 11pp. MSs sermon ; by Timothy Edwards (1669-1758), father of Jonathan Edwards and an important puritan colonial and revivalist New England divine. The present manuscript is of significant historical importance for a great variety of reasons. Dating from 1720-25 it is an exceptionally early American mss by a central public figure. The confessions at the end, of five congregants, appear to relate to their confessions prior to receiving the Lord's Supper and probably reflect their conversions during the season of revival under Edwards in 1725, at which time he seems to have revisited the sermon. The sermon itself is on an important theme and must certainly be thought to have some bearing on the mind of his son, Jonathan. The manuscript is on record, both as image file and with historical introduction, footnotes, and complete transcription, with the Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale. A CD containing the digital file, historical introduction, and verbatim transcription accompanies the MSs. Autograph Box 2/ Binder 3
