August 17, 2011: Cotton Mather's Invisible Tragedy

Is the title of my second contribution to the Boston.com Salem History Time column, as part of a series on the witch trials:

Thanks as ever to Maggi Smith-Dalton, the series' editor and all around impressive AmericanStudier, for the opportunity. Part 2, also on Mather, will be next Wednesday! More tomorrow,

Ben

PS. Any thoughts on the witch trials, Mather, good men doing nothing in the face of evil, or anything else?
