How did the Reformation in Great Britain affect the colonization of the New World?
What don't you understand about bobpursley's response?
I know that the Pertains went to the New World and that the colonization was based on freedom of religion and freedom for the people. But I don't know how the Reformation in Great Britain affected the colonies.
Britain had been Roman Catholic. But the Reformation opened up Britain to Protestant religions. Because of discrimination in Britain, some of the Protestants emigrated to the American colonies so that they could practice their religion with no interference.
