Congregational Library in Boston is holding a birthday party for Puritan divine Cotton Mather on October 18, 2013. Peggy Bendroth and the good folks at the Congregational Library are calling the conference "Mather Redux: New Perspectives on Cotton Mather." Participants include Reiner Smolinksi, Rick Kennedy, Francis Bremer, and Ken Minkema.
Looks like a great conference.
Speaking of Mather, I am looking forward to Kennedy's forthcoming Cotton Mather: First American Evangelical (Eerdmans, 2014).
