1 Title:   Reverend Charles Colcock Jones, Sr. notebook  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Jones, Charles Colcock, 1804-1863  
  Dates:   1828-1829  
A notebook containing over three hundred pages of notes in Reverend Jones' hand, made during his middle year at Andover Seminary. The entire work discusses "Christian Theology," but it is broken into two sections: the first of 247 pages is Jones' own course outline developed on the advice of Dr. Porter, who suggested to Jones that he "form a sketch of the subject, arranged in your own manner - then read on it extensively as time will permit - hear the lectures & recitations - and then write down the entire results" ; the second of 61 pages is the note-taking done in Dr. Wood's lectures on Christian Theology. Skillfully written and organized, this early example of Jones' scholarship exemplifies the meticulousness with which he proceeded and is valuable to show the formative influences of his theological training. In the decade preceding the Civil War, few theologians were more influential than the Georgian Charles Colcock Jones. For further information on this distinguished minister, consult "Children of Pride" by Robert Manson Myers.
