A "BOSTON CHARTER DAY" lecture by the Partnership of the Historic Bostons
FRANCIS J. BREMER
Renowned historian Francis J. Bremer explores the social gospel of a Puritan community knit together in mutual aid on the "city on the hill".
The Puritans sought to create, from scratch, a society in which all members would labor to assist one another. What was the social gospel driving this radical vision? How did it work in church, state, and society? Dr. Bremer, author of 19 books on early American history, takes an inside look at the Puritan vision and its legacy.
Join us for this on-line presentation -- the first of our online autumn lectures on The Common Good. As we debate today the benefits of individual freedoms vs. the collective good, what does the past have to teach us? Would 17th-century Bostonians opt for masks - or not? Find out with our stunning series on a topic more relevant than ever.
