Worksop, Witches and a Place in American History: the Life of Richard Bernard with Adrian Gray

Join as as we connect via Zoom with Cambridge-educated historian Adrian Gray for an exploration of Rhode Island’s connections to notorious English witch hunter, Richard Bernard. The father of Roger William’s wife Mary, Bernard is best-known for his authoritative guide on witches, including how a good and bad witch may be known, evicted, and condemned. Bernard included a life full of controversy and conflict and left a legacy that may have influenced Rhode Island being the only colony with no accusations of witchcraft.
