AbstractMargaret Hanson analyzes Claggett’s very public campaign against the Second Baptist Church in “A Looking-Glass for William Claggett: Theology, Self-Representation, and Early Eighteenth-Century Print Culture.” Claggett went on to become a renowned clockmaker, one of Newport’s most notable eighteenth-century artisans. Hanson’s analysis of William Claggett’s outspoken attempt to restore his reputation gives us insight into the workings of eighteenth-century Baptist culture and into the man himself.
