The Trial of Anne Hutchinson

Lecture no. 1 from the course: Liberty on Trial in America: Cases That Defined Freedom

The Trial of Anne Hutchinson

Taught by Professor Douglas O. Linder | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

There was no toleration of religious dissent in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in the 1600s; you either accepted Puritan orthodoxy, or you could leave. And there certainly was no room for religious argument for a woman! When Anne Hutchinson shared with others her religious ideas and gathered a following, the governor put her on trial for heresy. Explore the trials, defense, and punishment of the woman sometimes called “America’s first feminist.”
