Between the Puritan community and the Witchcraft Phenomenon, which would you agree had more of an impact? 150 to 200 words.
Hello, Jtorres,

The Puritan community had more of an impact. The witchcraft trials were more localized in smaller cities such as Salem.

A strict look at the witch trials along the Northeastern colonies in the 17th century reveals that they were not really witch trials. Since the actual people who were tried were not witches in the mythological sense of the word. They were just people who disagreed with the Puritan form of government. Some of the accused were Baptists (Separatists), some were Strangers (non-Christians), and some were other religions and races. XXXXX XXXXX, the Baptist pastor and founder of Road Island, was such a one that was accused of being a witch.

The Puritans, however, formed a community the Massachusetts Bay community that later became Boston. Boston became an influential town in the colonies. Even though much of the strict Puritan societal laws were neglected with the growth of the colony, many of their traditions survived to influence honesty a morality among America's leaders. Government is limited to the consenting population was one of their beliefs. This idea made its way into the Constitution.
