Chapter Summary

The Hartford Sermon Notebook is a compact, bound series of notes taken during sermons delivered by a variety of different ministers in Hartford, Connecticut during the years 1679 and 1680. The first goal of this book was to complete an accurate transcription of over two hundred pages of colonial handwriting from a sermon notebook of unknown authorship, while its second objective was to provide a thorough analysis of the content of the sermons, to show how they might fit into existing theories of New England Puritan society and theology. The analysis necessarily deals with only a small number of themes in the historiography of the New England Puritans, with emphasis on the final decades of the seventeenth century.

Keywords: Hartford Sermon Notebook; New England Puritans; seventeenth century
