The Newton Project UK

The Newton Project was founded in 1998 and is based at Sussex University, where Rob Iliffe heads a team that includes Michael Hawkins and John Young. The goal of the Newton Project is to provide online access to Newton’s scientific, theological and administrative papers, with an initial focus on Newton’s previously-unpublished theological writings. By providing instant access to these non-canonical writings of this early modern natural philosopher, the Newton Project is leading a scholarly revolution that is changing the way we view the figure many see as the father of modern science. A steadily increasing array of manuscript transcriptions can be found at the Newton Project website, including almost all of the theological papers.
