How to use puritan in a sentence?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  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. 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.
