Introduction. Crimes Against NatureChapter 1. The Sisyphean Battle Against BestialityChapter 2. The Unlikely Prosecutions of John Farrell and Gideon WashburnChapter 3. Sexual Crisis in the Age of RevolutionChapter 4. Fearful Rulers in Anxious TimesChapter 5. Puritan Twilight in the New England Republics
In 1796, as revolutionary fervor waned and the Age of Reason took hold, an eighty-five-year-old Massachusetts doctor was convicted of bestiality and sentenced to hang. Three years later and seventy miles away, an eighty-three-year-old Connecticut farmer was convicted of the same crime and sentenced to the same punishment. Prior to these criminal trials, neither Massachusetts nor Connecticut had executed anyone for bestiality in over a century. Though there are no overt connections between the two episodes, the similarities of their particulars are strange and striking. Historians Doron S. Ben-Atar and Richard D. Brown delve into the specifics to determine what larger social, political, or religious forces could have compelled New England courts to condemn two octogenarians for sexual misbehavior typically associated with much younger men.
