Join us as David Hall (Harvard University) presents a sweeping transatlantic history of Puritanism from its emergence out of the religious tumult of Elizabethan England to its founding role in the story of America. Shedding new light on the diverse forms of Puritan belief and practice in England, Scotland, and New England, Hall provides a multifaceted account of a cultural movement that judged the Protestant reforms of Elizabeth’s reign to be unfinished. Hall describes the movement’s deeply ambiguous triumph under Oliver Cromwell, its political demise with the Restoration of the English monarchy in 1660, and its perilous migration across the Atlantic to establish a “perfect reformation” in the New World.

At Massachusetts Historical Society starting at 5:30 PM. Includes a reception with light refreshments, followed by Q&A. Free for MHS members and Fellows, and holders of an EBT Card to Culture or ConnectorCare Card to Culture. $10 for general public. Please see www.masshist.org/calendar or call 617.536.1608 for more information.
