Martin Luther 1517 Protestant Reformation John Calvin - predestination - Calvinism Henry VIII of England - Anglican Church of England

5 Beer and the Mayflower The Mayflower is headed for Virginia…but ends up putting ashore at Plymouth rock. One Pilgrim’s diary explains why: “We could not take time for further search or consideration, our victuals being much spent, especially our beer.” Once ashore, they promptly erected a brew-house…. They needed to make a beer run!

Va. Company - Mayflower Compact (squatters submitting to will of majority) Wm Bradford 1691 merge w/ Mass. Bay colony Keeps the rabble from rebelling

7 Covenant Theology “Covenant of Grace”: “Social Covenant”:
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.

We shall be as a city on a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us.  Successful. John Winthrop - City on a Hill - holy society Covenant w/ God - “freedmen” of congregation - Congregational Church. Larger voting pop. of males than in England. Still not a “democracy” “visible saints” only eligible for church membership and they = freedmen Purpose of gov’t was to enforce God’s laws to all ppl Everyone paid taxes to gov’t supported church BIBLE COMMONWEALTH John Cotton - defending duty of gov’t to enforce religious rules Power of preachers not absolute - hired/fired by congregation Can’t hold political office (historical fear) separation of church and state Protestant work ethic
