Who is Anne Hutchinson?
2 Answers | add yours
Anne Hutchinson was a real person who lived in the 15 and 1600s. She is most famous for what happened to her when she lived in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Basically, Anne Hutchinson was expelled from that colony for having improper religious beliefs and for talking about and promoting those beliefs. She was seen as a threat to the established Puritan order in the colony.
Anne Hutchinson's major problem was that she preached a doctrine that would have undermined Puritan authority. She taught that she knew what God wanted her to do and that there was no need to submit to what the Puritan leadership told her to do.
