Delinquent Saints: Disciplinary Action in the Early Congregational Churches of Massachusetts

Review of Metaphysics 10 (1):181-181 (1956)

Abstract
A thorough and careful report on the variety and extent of offenses prosecuted by the Puritan churches from colonial times into the nineteenth century, with some asides on civil cases, such as the Salem witch trials. The text is lively with verbatim testimony. A large bibliography frankly notes the various reasons why some records are "unavailable."--E. T.
