The complete work of Charles Darwin online

Charles Darwin onlineThe largest collection of Darwin’s writings ever assembled. This is the promise from the University of Cambridge. With the help of the Charles Darwin trust, they are assembling more than 50,000 searchable text pages and 40,000 images of both publications and handwritten manuscripts from the father of the theory of Evolution.

Unfortunately, all is not available yet. But they are actively preparing 2009 (the 100th 200th anniversary of his birth) by digitizing documents as fast as possible. They are providing documents which were not publicly seen before and they intend to finish by 2009.

Since today is already the anniversary of Charles Darwin birthdate, it seemed adequate to tell you about it in the context of the renewed battles against the theory of Evolution in some countries that would appear otherwise as scientifically advanced like the United States of America.

Two other websites provide uniquely important, complementary Darwin materials: The Correspondence of Charles Darwin and The Darwin Digital Library of Evolution.

Reminder: All documents are in English (the language that Darwin used).
