dc.description.abstractSamuel Willard (1640-1707), son of Major Simon Willard, was born in Concord, Massachusetts, and attended Harvard College. He held two pastorates, Groton (1663-1676) and Third Church in Boston from 1678 to his death in 1707; during the last six years he was Vice President of Harvard. A faithful pastor, able preacher and noted lecturer, he took a mediating position in the Salem Witchcraft Cases, the ouster of Increase Mather from the College in 1700, and the establishment of Brattle Street Church. He was embroiled in an Anabaptist controversy in the 1680's but exercised unusual tolerance toward Benjamin Colman and Ebenezer Pemberton in spite of their liberal leanings. [TRUNCATED]
