Twenty years, seven million words – and counting. Physics, mathematics, alchemy, theology, chronology, and the Royal Mint. Originally dispersed all over the world, the online, open-access Newton Project has brought together all of Newton’s writings for the first time in three hundred years. What were once the private materials of a rather secluded individual can now be accessed by anyone, from anywhere, in a easily readable and machine-analysable format. In this lecture, I will address how the digital reunification of Isaac Newton’s papers has revolutionized modern scholarship, and how questions historians of the past did not even dare to ask can now be answered.
