Mather Increase

 

 

 

Né le 21 juin 1639 à Dorchester, mort le 23 août 1723 à Boston.

Fils de pasteur.

En 1651, il entre à l'Université d'Harvard, il est bachelier en 1656. Il prononce son premier sermon en 1657.

Il embarque pour l'angleterre. De 1657 à 1659, il est au collège de la Trinité à Dublin.

En 1659, il est pasteur dans le devon. Il sera le chapelain de la garnison de Guernesey.

En 1661, il embarque pour Boston suite à la politique anti-puritaine des Stuart.

En 1662, il épouse la fille de John Cotton.

La couronne d'angleterre veut imposer son autorité dans les colonies américaines et produit « l'Exclusion Act » rétablissant l'exclusivité de l'Église anglicane.

En 1664, il est pasteur de la Seconde église de Boston.

La politique de Londres, visant à supprimer les privilèges des colonies (chartes) inquiète les puritains qui envisagent la fin de la « Plantation du Seigneur ».

En 1674, The Day of Trouble Is Near (sermon) traduit ces craintes.

En 1675, suit à l'insurrection indienne (guerre du roi Philipp), la colonie puritaine est décimée. En 1679, Mather convoque un synode qui dresse la liste précise des « transgressions » (apostasies) qui ont provoqué la colère divine (danse, musique, port de perruque).

En 1683, il rédige sa Kometographia (interprétation terrifiante passage de la comète de Haley en 1682).

En 1684, abolition de la charte de la Nouvelle-Angleterre (instauration du Dominion).

En 1688, Mather embarque secrètement pour l'Angleterre pour plaider la cause des puritains.

En 689, suite à la rumeur du débarquement de Guillaume d'Orange à Douvres, Boston se soulève et emprisonne le gouverneur. Mather Cotton (le fils) rédige les doléances (Declaration of Gentlemen and Marchants).

Entre temps, Increase Mather est reçu par Jacques II bientôt renversé par Guillaume d'Orange.

En 1691, une nouvelle charte est établie et en 1692, Mather rentre en Nouvelle-Angleterre auréolé d'un grand prestige.

Son fils, Cotton Mather, joua un rôle important dans l'affaire des « Sorcières de Sallem », notamment avec la publication de The Wonders of the invisible World en 1693.
