  • When he had returned from Europe, he found that his village had been wiped out be the great epidemic. * Important note: Interaction between Native Americans and settlers was rarer in Massachusetts than in Virginia because the Native Americans of Massachusetts had previously suffered a plague that had decimated much of the population
  • In a dramatic move, the Congregationalist merchants boldly decided to transfer to New England. The settlers would then be answerable to no one in the mother country and would be able to handle their affairs, secular and religious, as they pleased.
  • Protestant work ethic, limited worldly pleasures, fear of hell
  • He told his follow settlers that: (1) the king of England had no right to grant them land already occupied by Indians (2) the church and state should be kept entirely separate (3) Puritans should not impose their religious beliefs on others This created a problem because Puritan leaders placed a heavy emphasis on consensus in both religion and politics. They could not tolerate significant dissent. Rhode Island adopted a policy of tolerating all religions, including Judaism. This forerunner of religious freedom eventually became one of the hallmarks of the United States.
  • The title Mistress revealed her high status. She greatly admired John Cotton, a minister who stressed the covenant of grace, or God’s free gift of salvation to unworthy human beings. Mistress Hutchinson began holding women’s meetings in her home to discuss his sermons. Mistress Hutchinson offered Puritans certainty of salvation, instead of a state of constant anxiety. Her approach also lessoned the importance of the institutional church and its members. She was interrogated by John Winthrop. She was able to cleverly defend herself. However, she triumphantly and boldly declared that God had spoken to her directly, explaining that he would curse the Puritans’ descendants for generations if they harmed her. That assertion assured her banishment. Several years later, after she moved to New Netherland, she and most of her children were killed by Indians. Mistress Hutchinson threatened not only religious orthodoxy, but also traditional gender roles. Puritans considered actual women inferior to men. They were almost as outraged by her “masculine” behavior as by her religious beliefs. Winthrop charged her with having set wife against husband, since so many of her followers were women.
