Coming in 2017
Colonial life was thoroughly intertwined with religion during the 1700s, but one of the major shakeups was when a wave of religious revivals swept through the churches in the 1730s, particularly in the colonies of Connecticut and Massachusetts. The “First Great Awakening” was a ideological clash of the times. It will be explored by Thomas Key of Salisbury during a Kent Historical Society Sunday Series talk Sept. 17 at 2 p.m. in Kent Town Hall.
