Lincoln Logarithms

Lincoln Logarithms: Finding Meaning in Sermons uses digital tools to analyze fifty-seven sermons delivered after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Emory scholars questioned whether using digital tools to analyze a collection of elegiac sermons might uncover patterns or new insights about Lincoln's memorialization. This project explores what such tools can and cannot show us. 

About the Project

Lincoln Logarithms is a partnership between DiSC and the Lewis H. Beck Center for Electronic Collections, which previously digitized the sermons archived in the Pitts Theology Library's collections./p>
