Puritanism • Puritanism highly influenced the founding and growth of the New England colonies • However, that influence did not last, as different factors reshaped those colonies and Puritanism faced a crisis • The Puritan era is 1620-1690s. After that, other trends gain in influence
English Reformation: More ‘political’ than theological; frustrating the Puritans. • Henry VIII (Tudor), former defender of Rome against the Protestant Reformation, breaks the Church of England from Rome in 1534. (divorce) COE = Protestant but “Anglican.” • Mary I brings back Catholicism (1553-58.) • Elizabeth I: ‘settlement’; fairly Protestant. Puritans want more reform. • James I (1603-1625) tolerant of Catholicism; Charles I executed after the English Civil War (1649). • Charles II was restored in 1660; Anglican. His successor James II was thought to be too pro-Catholic Glorious Rev (Wm & Mary, 1688.) • Anglican Protestant rulers forevermore. Anglican = COE, Protestant, kept ritual etc.
Puritanism • Calvinism Institutes of the Christian Religion, by John Calvin, 1536. • Predestination. • Good works could not save those predestined for hell. • No one could be certain of their spiritual status. • Gnawing doubts led to constantly seeking signs of “conversion.” • Puritans: They are Calvinists. In particular, they: • Want to totally reform [purify] the Church of England. • Grew impatient with the slow process of Protestant Reformation back in England.
Separatists • Separatist Beliefs: • Puritans who believed only “visible saints” [those who could demonstrate in front of their fellow Puritans their elect status] should be admitted to church membership. • Because the Church of England enrolled all the king’s subjects, Separatists felt they had to share churches with the “damned.” • Therefore, they believed in a total break from the Church of England.
Covenant Theology • “Covenant of Grace”: • between Puritan communities and God. • “Social Covenant”: • Between members of Puritan communities with each other. • Required mutual watchfulness. • No toleration of deviance or disorder. • No privacy.

A Modell of Christian Charity by John Winthrop “…we must be knit together, in this work, as one man. We must entertain each other in brotherly affection. We must be willing to abridge ourselves of our superfluities, for the supply of others’ necessities. We must uphold a familiar commerce together in all meekness, gentleness, patience and liberality. We must delight in each other; make others’ conditions our own; rejoice together, mourn together, labor and suffer together, always having before our eyes our commission and community in the work, as members of the same body. … We shall find that the God of Israel is among us, when ten of us shall be able to resist a thousand of our enemies; when He shall make us a praise and glory that men shall say of succeeding plantations, "may the Lord make it like that of New England. For we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us. So that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to withdraw His present help from us, we shall be made a story and a by-word through the world.”
