The local preacher is Arthur Dimmesdale. He is a devout man who makes the one mistake of fathering a child with Hester Prynne. He later is very hard on himself, punishing himself with self-flagellation, and regrets his sinfulness. He does "come clean" by the end of the novel, but he is truly repentant.
