A study of the rise and decline of puritanism in England and New England that focuses on the role of godly men and women. It explores the role of family devotions, lay conferences, prophesying and other means by which the laity influenced puritan belief and practice, and the efforts of the clergy to reduce lay power in the seventeenth century.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book's spatial and temporal framework make it especially illuminating. Bremer is not the first historian to situate Puritanism in its transatlantic context, but he renders that context more useful by making it multidirectional." (Shelby M. Balik, Journal of American History, Vol. 103 (1), June, 2016)

"Lay Empowerment, while drawing on some primary source material, predominantly assembles existing research in a useful new framework that emphasizes how central the laity were to the development of puritanism. ... the study as a whole offers a valuable account of the lay contribution to puritanism's coherence and dynamism across its diverse manifestations." (Kate Narveson, American Historical Review, Vol. 121 (3), June, 2016)
