This is where I spend Sundays learning about Theology and it’s history



As it is a church, I have time in between services to take online courses on Divinity. When you take courses online, it is recommended to find a spot conducive to studying and where you can regularly schedule time. It is not on campus, but it is connected to Harvard and Gordon Conwell Theological seminary, although we recently had lunch with M.I.T student and a Gospel choir from Boston College, which was spectacular.

The only thing is Sam Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock, James Otis, Robert Treat Paine, and Ben Franklin’s parents as well as Mother Goose are resting in the backyard adjacent to our large windows. The original church Covenant is from 1809. Churches from the Boston Massacre are on the same Freedom Trail. If you spot the stately Orpheum Theater across the street, don’t be fooled, It dates from before the Civil War. Across the street from the graveyard is another graveyard from earlier dating to near 1640 a.d.

We hope you enjoyed Shakespeare's Hamlet: The Ghost with Professor Stephen Greenblatt. If you would like to continue your Shakespearean studies, we invite you to enroll in Shakespeare's Life and Work, a new course with Professor Greenblatt launching on September 12.

How do we read Shakespeare? Do his plays belong to the past, or the present? To a famed dramatic genius or to readers and audiences around the globe? What do his plays really mean?
