Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses Dominie Bogardus's wrath and his excessive drinking. Starting with Kieft, and continuing right through his twentieth-century biographers, these two qualities have been so exclusively linked to his unpleasant character and personal failure that they have led to his historical disqualification as a pastor. By way of conclusion, the chapter draws attention to a thematic thread running through Evert Willemsz's entire life, namely his pietism. This gives us a fresh perspective on the early history of New Netherland and on Dominie Bogardus's unique place in its development. Pietism, the praxis pietatis, is perhaps the strongest thread that unites the adult Bogardus with young Evert Willemsz and, more generally, the colony of New Netherland with late sixteenth-century and early seventeenth-century Holland.
