Jonathan Edwards on Property, Liberty, and the National Covenant

Gerald R. McDermott

Abstract


This article examines the thinking of the eighteenth-century theologian Jonathan Edwards on property and liberty. It argues that for Edwards this entailed certain roles for government and that all of these considerations are best understood in what was called the national covenant tradition. It goes on to suggest the usefulness of this tradition for contemporary understandings.
