Example text

Actually, the ministers had held a 49 Anne Hutchinson/Colonial 4 1/16/01 6:21 AM Page 50 50 ANNE HUTCHINSON conference with her some months earlier. She had been urged to tell them exactly how she felt and what she believed. They promised her the meeting would be private. Now some of the same men who were supposed to keep that meeting secret were telling everyone what she had said. The main point was that she had accused all the ministers, except John Cotton and John Wheelwright, of believing and preaching in the Covenant of Works.

She could only be punished for what she said or did. John Winthrop called her to appear before the court. He was determined to put an end to her teaching and 43 Anne Hutchinson/Colonial 4 1/16/01 6:21 AM Page 44 44 ANNE HUTCHINSON to discover even the smallest action for which he could punish her.

Even though people had to make a great effort to get to the trial, many were there.

She spent nine long hours answering more questions and arguing with the ministers. As hard as that was, the hardest part was knowing that even John Cotton, the teacher she admired and followed for almost 20 years, had turned against her. Near the end of the day, the church had to vote on whether or not to admonish—publicly scold—Anne Hutchinson for her beliefs. In order to admonish her, everyone in the church had to vote in favor of it. Two people voted against it— her son, Edward, and her son-in-law, Thomas Savage.
