  4. You should also think about the Puritans in the religous context of England at the time (mid 16C) as they were non-conformists.

  6. also remember that there are two groups, Puritans, and more religiously zealous puritains called Seperatists. The Seperatists were the puritans who went to the new world (america) and founded Massachusettes to create a land of religious oppurtunity and purity.
