 About the Book 

With over 400 letters, this book represents virtually all of Jeffersons religious correspondence and documented religious actions. Never before has all of it been collected into one volume until now. The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, published byMoreWith over 400 letters, this book represents virtually all of Jeffersons religious correspondence and documented religious actions. Never before has all of it been collected into one volume until now. The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, published by Princeton University Press, have yet to publish many of Jeffersons correspondence from over fifteen years of his life. But Beliles has taken on the enormous task of bringing over 50 letters written by Jefferson into print here for the first time ever along with many previously unpublished letters written to Jefferson from religious leaders and communities of faith. Furthermore, entries from Jeffersons Memorandum Books and other documents provide additional context to the correspondence. The work is valuable for scholars but also interesting to many readers interested in Jefferson and Americas founding era.
