Museums on the Green:Matthew Stewart, “Nature’s God: The Heretical Origins of the American Republic”

Lectures / Seminars Erudite Thomas Jefferson, wily Ben Franklin, rough-hewn general Ethan Allen, and Thomas Young (the forgotten Founder who instigated the Boston Tea Party)-the radicals who founded America set their sights on a revolution of the mind. Derided as "infidels" and "atheists" in their own time, they wanted liberation not just from one king but from the tyranny of supernatural religion. The ideas that inspired them were neither British nor Christian but largely ancient, pagan, and continental: the fecund universe of the dreaded Lucretius; the potent (but nontranscendent) natural divinity of the heretic Spinoza. From the true meaning of "nature's God" and "self-evident" in the Declaration of Independence to the sources of our success in science, medicine, the arts, religious toleration, and democratic governance, Matthew Stewart's lucid and passionate investigation surprises, challenges, enlightens, and entertains as a philosophical detective story of the highest order.

Museums on the Green: Lecture- Ken Turino, “The Spirit of Christmas Past: Four Centuries of Christmas in New England”

Lectures / Seminars This well illustrated lecture traces the development of the celebration of Christmas from the time it was outlawed in 17th Century New England through the beginning of the 21st Century when all the trappings of a traditional Christmas were in place. For many, the celebration of Christmas today is the most important holiday of the year. But many of the customs which we take for granted as part of the current holiday festivities and religious celebrations are actually a product of more recent history. Kenneth C. Turino, Manager of Community Engagement and Exhibitions at Historic New England has published several articles on the history of Christmas and speaks on the topic widely. He will look at how Christmas was transformed from a rowdy celebration to a family centered event. Among the topics discussed are how the Christmas tree became popular, halls were decked, and Santa Claus came to town. Region: Upper Cape. Town: Falmouth. Category: Special Events.
