Overview

"The single most comprehensive account of the often-misinterpreted trials of one of America's first great dissenters. Winship's unparalleled understanding of seventeenth-century New England Puritanism supplies a context too frequently missing from previous accounts."-Mary Beth Norton, author of In the Devil's Snare: The Salem Witchcraft Crisis of 1692

"The prosecution of Anne Hutchinson was a defining movement in early American history. Winship vividly describes dramatic courtroom scenes, powerful personalities driven to the edges of their beliefs, and the relentless hounding of a highly intelligent woman who thought she understood God's will."-Amanda Porterfield, author of Female Piety in New England: The Emergence of Religious Humanism

Author Biography: Michael P. Winship is professor of history at the University of Georgia and author of Making Heretics: Militant Protestantism and Free Grace in Massachusetts, 1636-1641 and Seers of God: Puritan Providentialism in the Restoration and Early Enlightenment.
