History Matters Brown Bag Lunch: Adrian Weimer
Today many people remember the Puritans for intolerance and bloody conflicts with Native Americans. Yet Adrian Weimer argues that the Puritans truly believed they were a beleaguered minority.
By tracing their identity to persecution and suffering endured under Mary Tudor the Puritans saw themselves as martyrs following a painful path to godliness. Weimer's research helps explain Puritan attitudes toward Native Americans and others.
