Dr. Cochran Will Discuss
Significance of Puritanism
Dr. Bernard H. Cochran will deliver the Distinguished Faculty Lecturc
on April 4 at 8:00 in Jones Auditorium. His topic, “Anatomy of Puri
tanism,” will include the nature of Puritanism and the Puritan movement
as a whole.
Puritanism began during the Reformation in England in the reicn of
Queen Elizabeth I. Although Elizabeth was Protestant, there was a con
flict between Protestanism and Catholicism. The Puritans contributed not
only to religious liberty, but also to English literature in such creat ficures
as John Milton.
Dr. Cochran will also discuss the myths and misunderstandings sur
rounding Puritanism. He will include references to American colonial
thought and make contemporary application to this. His topic is signifi
cant because it has meaning in many areas, not primarily in religion. '
Dr. Cochran, associate professor of religion, is presently on a leave
of absence to study at Duke Utiiversity, where he has been working in
the area of Puritanism. He received his A.B. degree from Stetson Uni
versity, B.D. and Th.M. degrees from Southeastern Baptist Theological
Seminary, and Ph.D degree from Duke University.
This is the sixth in the series of Distinguished Faculty Lectures. In
November of this year Dr. Mary Lynch Johnson spoke on “Words-
Daughters and Sons of Earth and of Heaven.” There will be a reception
after the lecture to which all students, faculty, and guests are invited
