Summary

Award-wining historian Edmund Morgan relates the hardships and triumphs of the Puritan movement through this vivid account of its most influential leader, John Winthrop. This indispensable text follows Winthrop from when he caught the fever of Puritanism in England to the dilemma that still lingers in the air of Democracy today: what responsibility does a religious person owe to society?

Author Biography

Edmund S. Morgan's biography of John Winthrop follows the Puritans' most influential leader as he catches the fever of Puritanism in England, travels to the New World, and establishes himself as a central political figure and twelve-time governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Winthrop's struggles and accomplishments illuminate the puritan migration and the Puritans' attempts to build a new type of society in the New World. Winthrop and the Puritans faced a dilemma that is still pertinent today: what responsibility does a religious person owe to society?
