Do you believe in witches or ghosts? Puritans An Introduction to The Crucible Who were the Puritans? Group of religious, social, and moral reformers who emerged within the Church of England during the middle of the sixteenth century.

Sought to purify the church by getting rid of the hierarchy (priests, bishops, cardinals) and ornate ceremonies. Against man-made doctrine and church politics. Believed religion should be plain. People should worship through Bible reading and individual prayer. The Great Migration Puritans were persecuted in England for their radical beliefs. 1630-1640 over 20,000 immigrated to New England to

create a new society based on their religious ideals. In his famous sermon A Model of Christian Charity, John Winthrop described their society as a city upon a hill that would be watched by the whole world. Believed they were doing Gods work by settling in America. Puritan Beliefs The Puritans believed in Predestination. Before the dawn of history, God chose who He would save and

who He would condemn to Hell. There is a plan for everyone. The chosen few, called saints, experience a strong feeling of assurance that they have received Gods grace. This experience is called conversion. Puritans were always looking for signs of grace in themselves and others. Important: Puritans believed the deeds of people, no matter how good or moral, have no influence over who God elects for salvation. Would you accept this?

Is this belief comforting or upsetting to you? Why? What problems does it pose? If you believed in Predestination, how would you live your life? Did they accept this? They were an extraordinarily energetic, activist lot, constantly striving to reshape both society and government to accord with what they

believed to be the will of God as set forth in the Bible. They strove to lead godly and disciplined lives. Puritans believed that their very ability to master their own sinful ways provided some evidence that they ranked among the elect of saints. Godliness was the effect, not the cause of salvation.

Benefits of a Strict Society The Puritans maintained an orderly society even during uncertain times. Their work ethic helped them survive in harsh conditions.
