Boston has many historic churches and other places of worship that are remarkable for their architecture, beauty, and connection to the early development of the city. Houses of worship are not only places for religious congregations to gather, they are also signposts to the history of the communities in which they are located. In this online course, we will spend three sessions discussing a varied selection of historic religious sites built from colonial times to the early 20th century. These special places will illuminate key aspects of Boston’s history. We will focus especially on houses of worship that still function today and are open to the public. What is noteworthy about each of these buildings? What does each of these places tell us about the life and times of this city? Each session will include an illustrated talk and time for discussion. Participants will leave with an enriched understanding of Boston’s history, an appreciation for our wealth of historic churches, and plenty of ideas for visiting historic religious sites on their own. Instructor: Elizabeth Merrick
