Reflecting on his past, President John Adams mused that it was religion that had shaped his family’s fortunes and young America’s future. Globetrotters who chronicled their religious journeys extensively, the Adams’ developed a cosmopolitan Christianity that blended discovery and criticism, faith and doubt. From Abigail Adams’ use of religion during the Revolution to her Victorian descendants’ journeys through foreign faiths, Georgini’s lecture will explore how pivotal Christianity- as the different generations understood it- was in shaping the family’s decision, great and small.
