Jefferson: Architect of American Liberty - Mass Historical Society - Lecture

Thursday, November 16, 2017

Jefferson challenges us more thoroughly than any other Founder; he was at once the most idealistic, contradictory, and quintessentially American of them all.

John Boles, the eminent Jefferson scholar, will discuss his new biography that does not ignore the aspects of Jefferson that trouble us today, but strives to see him in full, and to understand him amid the sweeping upheaval of his times.

From Jefferson's inspiring defenses of political and religious liberty to his heterodox abridgment of Christian belief, it explores Jefferson's expansive intellectual life and the profound impact of his ideas on the world.
