Wickedness, like saintliness, is in the eye of the beholder. In two talks Dr. Meyers will trace the charges of sorcery and apostacy made against women from the proto-feminist Anne Hutchinson, a spiritual leader who challenged male autority and gender roles in 17th century Massachusetts, to Amee Semple McPherson, among the most important revivalist of the early 20th century, to contemporay spiritual coaches who have taken their place in the long hisrory of women religious entrepreneurs.
