Brown Mason Brown History 111 Millikan February 15, 2010 Anne Hutchinson Anne Hutchinson faced much adversity and oppression in Boston, a colony that was steadfast in its Puritan beliefs. She started be holding religious meetings in her home for women, then gained popularity from the men in the colony, and eventually gave her personal interpretation of the church sermons; and this action is what caused her to go on trial. She also went on trial for her statements that you are saved by grace alone and that God gave grace to anyone (Created Equal, 48). She went under trail by church authorities for this action, but also partially just for the fact that she was a woman in a patriarchal society. In 1637, Anne Hutchinson was brought before the court for her religious meetings she held in her house. The church officials weren’t mad that she had religious meetings at first, but were after men started to seek guidance from her. Women had chosen to ask her for advice because they could trust her since she was a midwife (Class notes, 1/25/10).
