Description - Orthodoxies in Massachusetts by Janice Knight
Reexamining religious culture in 17-century New England, Knight discovers a contest of rival factions within Puritan orthodoxy. Arguing that two distinctive strains of Puritan piety emerged in England prior to migration to America, she describes splits between rationalism and mysticism, between theologies based on God's command and on God's love.
