Francis J. Bremer – Lay Empowerment and the Development of Puritanism

Francis J. Bremer’s account of ‘the role played by countless named and unnamed women in the story of the shaping of puritanism’ has now been published as Lay Empowerment and the Development of Puritanism (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015).

Publisher’s note: ‘A study of the rise and decline of puritanism in England and New England that focuses on the role of godly men and women. It explores the role of family devotions, lay conferences, prophesying and other means by which the laity influenced puritan belief and practice, and the efforts of the clergy to reduce lay power in the seventeenth century.’
