Question description

Religious controversy in the seventeenth century was a powerful force in the internal evolution of a number of the English colonies. Discuss how conflicts centering on religion shaped the colonies of Maryland, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

DEVELOPING YOUR ANSWER: Maryland and Massachusetts both arose because their founders opposed the Church of England. Within Maryland, Protestant opposition to the Catholic proprietor led to open conflict on several occasions, while the Toleration Act was an attempt to prevent it. Puritans in Massachusetts created a society guided by religious requirements and sought to stamp out religious dissent. Suppression of colonists like Roger Williams and Anne Hutchinson led to the creation of Rhode Island, a colony that, in contrast to Massachusetts, permitted freedom of religion.

Write a 2 - 3 page essay with a work cited page based on the textbook Making American (History of the United States) - 6th edition and any other relevant source or an online source. MLA format, double spaced, 12 font size
