Ravishing Affection: Myths and Realities about Puritans and Sex
The Merriam-Webster Thesaurus lists prudish, straightlaced, and puritanical as synonyms.  But historical records challenge the stereotype of Puritans repressive views and behaviors. Dont miss this special opportunity to hear Francis J. Bremer, author of sixteen books about the Puritans and Puritanism in the Atlantic world, as he dispels a popular mythdemonstrating that in fact, Puritans openly discussed sexuality and freely expressed passionate longings toward their loved ones.

This program is made possible with funding from the Lowell Institute. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, registration requested at
