How can we understand the Salem witchcraft accusations, trials, and executions of the early 1690s?  Distinguished historian David D. Hall, Bartlett Research Professor, and before that Barlett Professor of New England Church History at Harvard Divinity School will address this question in a fascinating and moving talk followed by a Q&A with the audience.  An engaging speaker and the author of many works about religious life and culture in early New England, including most recently his prizewinning book The Puritans: A Transatlantic History, Hall was the Ph.D. advisor at Boston University for Gustavus History Department Professor Greg Kaster and Professor Emeritus Kate Wittenstein.  Free and open to the public.
