A City Set Upon Three Hills:
Colonial Boston through the Eyes of John Eliot, Puritan Preacher
Known to history as the “Apostle to the Indians”, 17th century Puritan minister John Eliot is most famous for publishing the first Bible in the New World which was not even in English! It was a translation of the Scripture into the language of the native Massachusett people which he helped greatly to produce.
As a great missionary of early Boston and Roxbury, Eliot is the perfect tour guide to introduce the visitor downtown to all the sites and sounds of Boston as it was almost 400 years ago. A costumed re-enactor carries on a constant dialogue of comparison between the 21st and the 17th centuries.
