The Great Awakening in Beverly: the Disestablishment of the First Parish Church

The story of disestablishment in Massachusetts is often characterized as a struggle for the separation of church and state, waged between religious intellectuals, and punctuated by heroic legal battles in towns like Sandwich and Dedham.  But, the death of Beverly’s First Parish was not the result of disestablishment. Join First Parish Church historian, Charlie Wainwright for a lecture on the Great Awakening and its effect on the First Parish Church and Beverly.
