What is puritanism
What is Puritanism?

  • Puritanism is a series of beliefs held mainly by the New England settlers.

  • Was based on the teachings of John Calvin.

  • Taught people that God was the source of absolute truth.

  • Believed in Predestination, God decided everything

  • Believed that God was constantly intervening in the world

  • Man is inherently evil

  • (Stephenson).


And rationalism
And Rationalism?

  • Rationalism was a mid-18th century response to the extreme dogma of Puritanism

  • Believed that truth came through reason, rather than God

  • Believed in a much greater amount of freedom, and rejected Church dogma.

  • Rationalists believe that man is inherently good

  • Rationalists believe in the clock maker, theory, in that God, like a fine clock maker, lets the world run its own course, and does not interfere

  • (Leah).

  • (“Romantic”).


Romanticism
Romanticism

  • Romanticism is a literary movement that started as a response to rationalism

  • Romantics are much more idealistic than their Puritan and Rationalist counterparts.

  • To Romantics, truth comes from intuition, and civilization is the ultimate corrupter

  • There is a belief in Romanticism of the “Noble Savage,” a person who is untouched and uncorrupted by civilization, and in tune with nature

  • (Leah).

  • (“Romantic”).
