HIST 423 - Puritan Influence in America

Credits 1
Examines the history of Puritanism in founding and shaping early America. The ideas, institutions and values, positive and negative, of colonial American Puritans have played a very significant role in defining American civilization. While their influence is yet felt in American life today, our Puritan ancestors are largely misunderstood and maligned. This course helps set the historical record straight, and shows how Puritan ideas continue to impact our culture. Students are asked to write a summary essay dealing with Puritan strengths, weaknesses and influence on American civilization.
