label levels:

There is currently no available "Beginner" label. The following is the default level label: Lyman Beecher (1775-1863) was a prominent Presbyterian minister and president of Lane Theological Seminary in Cincinnati, Ohio, at the time he delivered the lecture this article excerpts. He was an outspoken opponent of religious diversity--even within the Protestant community-- and in this lecture speaks out against the Catholic Church. In the 19th century, many Protestants felt that Catholics were a threat to society because they gave allegiance to the pope and church over the laws of the land. Beecher claims that the Catholic Church has always been hostile to civil and religious liberty. The Greenfield Gazette and Franklin Herald was the newspaper in Greenfield, Massachusetts, from June 26, 1827 to June 27, 1837. It changed its name to the Gazette & Mercury.
