Presentation for the International John Bunyan Society – July 2022

I’m excited to present work from my ongoing project on early modern brewing texts at the very first IJBS Online Seminar Series this summer. My paper, “Reading Intemperance: Drink and Dissenting Writers in Early Modern England,” explores how dissenting writers such as Richard Baxter and John Bunyan think through the relationship of the body and the individual’s moral agency by making use of key biblical texts and exemplars.
