Anne Hutchinson Statute, Boston Massachusetts



Anne Hutchinson (1591-1642)


Anne Hutchinson was born in Alford, England in 1591. Living in the Massachusetts Bay Colony under John Winthrop she was banished to Rhode Island in 1638 on charges of blasphemy and sedition. 


  • These charges were brought because of her questioning puritanical teachings.


    • She argued that it contradictory to teach salvation being dependent on both an individual's good works and divine grace.


      • The Puritan response was to claim that good works are the only evidence of salvation rather than the grounds of salvation.
