How to use puritan in a sentence?

  1. Joe Bagley:

    The items are significant because we rarely see them, archaeologically, also, Puritan Boston is often seen as an extremely conservative, reserved, and religious location in the 17th century, which it was, but in wealthier houses, the residents had access to luxury goods, purchased them, and enjoyed their more extravagant lifestyle in the privacy of their own home.

  2. Jonathan Adler:

    There's a lot of research on the theme of redemption. It's sort of a classic American master narrative, we have the Puritan settlers finding freedom. We have ex-slaves' narratives about liberation. We have the rags to riches stories.

  3. Joe Bagley:

    Luxury items are rare in other 17th century sites in New England, but the two best sites found in Boston, including this one, have a high number of them showing that Boston was a center of wealth for the region and its residents who had that wealth were willing and able to show off a bit, despite their Puritan lifestyle.

  4. Thomas Babington Macaulay:

    The Puritan hated bear-baiting, not because it gave pain to the bear, but because it gave pleasure to the spectators.

  5. Bertrand Russell:

    We may define a Puritan as a man who holds that certain kinds of acts, even if they have no visible bad effects upon others than the agent, are inherently sinful, and, being sinful, ought to be prevented by whatever means is most effectual - the criminal law if possible, and, if not that, then public opinion backed by economic pressure.
