Paperback
In this classic work of American religious history, Robert Middlekauff traces the evolution of puritan thought and theology in America from its origins in New England through the early 18th century. He focuses on three generations of intellectual ministers - Richard, Increase and Cotton Mather - in order to challenge the traditional telling of the secularization of puritanism, a history of faith transformed by reason, science and business.;Delving into the Mather's private papers and unpublished writings as well as their sermons and published works, the author describes a puritan theory of religious experience that is more creative, complex, and uncompromising than traditional accounts have allowed. At the same time, he portrays changing ideas and patterns of behaviour that reveal much about the first hundred years of American life.
