Puritanism at the Boston Athenaeum

Rachel Trocchio arrived at the Athenæum yesterday and though jet-lagged, she energetically started studying books by William Perkins that are part of the Kings Chapel Collection. Enrolled at the University of California, Berkeley, Rachel will be at the Athenæum through next week to conduct research for her dissertation, "The Puritan Sublime." She studies late sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century theological works through the lens of American Puritanism and plans to return after the holidays. We look forward to hearing about what she learns.
