HISTORY. This is a volume in The American Heritage Series. "Puritanism was a very complex system of beliefs and institutions with as much diversity, creativity, and vitality as the enlightenment. Although it was nothing if not religious, from its core to its peripheries, it expressed itself in education, literature, morality, philosophy, and in every other phase of culture including political theory. Puritan political theory, like Puritanism itself, has many facets and left a lasting influence on American development. Notwithstanding elements of autocracy, elitism, and theocracy that dominated early seventeenth-century Puritan political thought, Puritanism was a bridge from medievalism to the Enlightenment across which travelled many of our most cherished concepts of democratic constitutionalism. Professor Morgan focuses upon three ideas that lay at the root of Puritan political theory and have had a continuing significance in our history: calling, covenant, and the separate spheres of church and state. One may read these documents as primary sources of Puritan thought per se, as sources of American intellectual history, or as sources of a political theory that flowered in the early years of the new constitutional republic.
