Andrew Rapoza, historian and author of Promising Cures, will present the little-known evidence of Puritans using counter-magic to fight witchcraft in the years before, during, and after the infamous Salem witch trials of 1692.

Andrew V. Rapoza is a magna cum laude graduate of Boston College,

with a Scholar of the College distinction in history. During his management

career in purchasing, contracts, and technical publications, he also pursued

his passion for collecting and researching health and medical history,

especially as it pertained to Lynn, Massachusetts, where he and his wife,

Gail, first raised their four children. Several of his research papers on Colonial,

Federal, and Victorian health in New England have been published and he

has been a guest speaker on these subjects in Texas and the Northeast,

including at the Strong Museum, Rochester, New York, and at the Dublin

Seminar for New England Folklife.

He has recently published a four-volume book titled

PROMISING CURES – the Pursuit of Health in a 19th Century New England

Community: Lynn, Massachusetts. It is available for sale in hardcover and

softcover on Amazon.com and for free in digital format on FamilySearch.org.
