Join Paul Revere House for the second lecture of the Paul Revere House's 2023 Lowell Lecture Series. This 3-part series From Puritans to Catholics: Religion in Boston’s North End examines how shifts in religious traditions impacted cultural expression, demographics, political affiliations and economic status in the North End.
The key speaker is Prof. Jaimie D. Crumley, Assistant Professor, Gender Studies Division and Ethnic Studies Division, University of Utah. This lecture explores the Church of England's interventions in the Puritan North End with Old North's founding in 1723.
Prof. Crumley will also discuss the previously less well-known role of people of color in the Old North Church community during its early days. Presented in partnership with GBH, the Suffolk University History Department, Old North Illuminated, and the North End Historical Society, with funding from the Lowell Institute.
