Bill Cole's Puritans, Plagues, and Promises, Part 2
Author and passionate genealogist William "Bill" Cole was in the Chapter House studio to talk more about his latest book, Puritans, Plagues, and Promises. You'll want to listen to our part 1 podcast if you haven’t already. That conversation covered Bill’s ancestors and their involvement in the Puritan Movement, which was an important piece of Christian history. Along the way, we also talked about King Henry VIII, the Church of England, the dreaded "Star Chamber," and religious freedom.
Here, in Part 2, we talk about the dreadful plagues that English subjects experienced and how they decimated families including Bill’s ancestors. After all, who wouldn't enjoy hearing about good outcomes from horrible pandemics? Join us!
