This edition of Newton‘s (1643–1727) works has never been replaced altogether to the present day. In spite of Newton’s profound impact on natural sciences, it should not be overlooked that substantial parts of his writings deal with philosophical and theological problems. Evidence of this can be found in this edition. It contains all of Newton’s major theological works. As a religious thinker, Newton dealt with Jacob Böhme’s writings in the English translation by Sparrow, published in 1661. In his interpretation of the apocalypse and the Book of Daniel, Newton focuses on Böhme’s mystical thought.
