Adrian Chastain Weimer is a historian of colonial America and the early modern British Atlantic. Her current research focuses on the crisis of religious and political authority in the 1660s. Looking at petitions, sedition trials, regicide-hunts, and rumors surrounding transatlantic events, the project explores how a sacralized charter and a politicized church became grounds for resistance to empire in the early years of the Restoration.
