The Puritans shaped many aspects of the American civil religion: virtue, integrity, education, work, individual freedom and communitarianism. Ellis Island: Ellis island was the headquarters of the U.S. immigration authority from 1892 to 1954. Almost 20 million people entered the US through Ellis island . They banished him and burned down Merrymount. Canaan. In England, Morton plotted his revenge. Even as William Bradford was writing his History of Plimoth Plantation, Morton wrote New English Canaan, a witty composition that praised the wisdom and humanity of the Indians and mocked the Puritans. It made him a celebrity in political circles Consider the title of Morton's work about his experiences in New England, New English Canaan. With it he satirizes the Puritans' habit of perceiving themselves and the New World in terms of the tribulations of the Israelites in the Old Testament. But also in this work describing New England, Morton appeale[s] to any man of judgement, whether it be not a Land that for her excellent indowments of Nature may passe for a plaine parallel to Canaan of Israell, being in a more temporat Climat. Morton tried one more stratagem to undercut the hated Puritans. He wrote an idiosyncratic book, New English Canaan, in which he celebrated all that was native to New England—a Rich, hopefull and very beautifull Country, worthy the Title of Natures Masterpeece—and reviled the English colonists as an invasive species. Melding a garrulous, highly metaphorical prose with sporadic verse, accompanied by learned quotations from Ovid and Cicero, much of Morton's book consists.
Morton particularly denounces the Puritan's policy of land enclosure and genocide of the native population, and ends with a call for the demartialising of the colonies and the creation of a multicultural New Canaan in the New World. The book was banned in Puritan New England. There is some bibliographical confusion due to ghost records; the work was entered to the London publisher Charles Greene in the Stationer's Register on 18 November 1633 but not published (or completed. Morton produced in these three books an inspired denunciation of Puritan government in the colonies and their policy of land enclosure against the native population, who were described as a far nobler culture, and defined as a Canaan under attack from the New Israel of the Puritans.

For Thomas Morton, the New World truly was a new English Canaan. As one of the very earliest English settlers on the Massachusetts coast, Morton experienced the New World as a singular and direct contrast to life in late feudal or early modern Europe. Born in Devon, England (1579), Thomas was educated as a lawyer and wrote extensive personal notes and observations about social reform inspired primarily by his time among Native Americans. His birthplace stamped Morton with the mark of High. One of the first settlements in what would become the United States was by the Puritans in New England. Independently, many Puritans took up and applied the older idea that England enjoyed a covenant with God—a 'covenant of grace,' they called it—even if they hesitated at first about whether the Promised Land was to be found in the new England or the old (Todd Gitlin and Leil Leibovitz. .738 Einwohnern.

Morton's attack was made all the more significant given the shift in context from his days in Merrymount to the publication of New English Canaan. Morton left New England in the late 1620s and published his memoir a decade later. By the time he did so, Puritan Massachusetts Bay battled for its very survival. Detailing the Practice of their Church, Morton primarily focuses his criticism on the outward orientation of Separatism. He begins by noting that virtually anyone can.

The Puritans reasoned in America the concept of the covenant would assume new dimensions. Once they reached the colonies a new factor entered into the matter of the covenant. In this New Israel the Puritans established a completely new society based solely upon the Jewish concept of a covenant between God and man. Thus the Puritans made certain of the.

Morton is a fascinating figure. He was a member of the gentry, but had a passion for social reform and, well, lawlessness.

When we think of early New England, we tend to picture stern-faced Puritans and black-hatted Pilgrims, but in the same decade that these more famous settlers arrived, a man called Thomas Morton founded a very different kind of colony — a neo-pagan experiment he named Merrymount. Ed Simon explores the colony's brief existence and the alternate vision of America it represents — Thomas Morton, New English Canaan.

In the New England Canaan, the documentation of the Puritans' behavior and the charges brought against mine host are conveyed from Morton's biased point of view. At one point he mentions that The conspirators sported themselves at my honest host, that meant them no hurt.

Morton's New English Canaan speaks back to Puritan plans for America based in Exodus and The Old Testament --- with the unblinkable human presence of Canaanite or Native American civilizations.
