Homework Help: English: Puritans

Posted by Amy~ on Sunday, September 19, 2010 at 4:57pm.

The question is:
Why could Winthrop's ideal not be achieved?

The paragraph where I have to find the answer:
Winthrop describes an ideal society, which, if the Puritans had been able to achieve it, would have been a reasonable facsimile of paradise on Earth. Being human, they could not sustain their religious fervor, nor live up to the idealized conditions.

Would the answer be the 1st part of the second sentence or the last part "could not live up to the conditions" or both?
