To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Moody Memorial Library, we are counting down 50 unique items from the special collections housed in the half-century-old building.
This month we are highlighting four sermons. The Central Libraries Special Collections hold around 300 sermons dating from the 17th century through the 20th that cover a broad range of topics. In addition to the message of the sermon, researchers can find different perspectives on historical events and periods.
#12 : The glorious rest of heaven by Mather Byles. (Boston, 1744)
#11 : A sermon, occasioned by the death of General George Washington by Peter Thatcher (Boston, 1800).
#10 : Earthquakes: a token of the righteous anger of God by Charles Chauncy (Boston, 1755).
#9 : The Godly Man's Ark by Edmund Calamy (London, 1661).
You can access these materials by arranging a visit with our special collections staff! To make an appointment, please visit our web page:
