罗杰.威廉斯 (Roger Williams),罗德岛州 (Rhode Island)的创始人,163125日抵达波士顿

在被任命为英国国教会的牧师,威廉斯发现了清教主义,可以做为改变英国国教的一种形式,这是他的第一份神职工作。但很快的,他失望了,他被告知前往麻塞诸塞湾,到殖民地担任牧师,离开对宗教并不宽容的英王查尔斯一世,他和妻子飘洋过海,前往吸取「美洲经验」,1631年到达波士顿。起初,威廉斯还想改革英国国教,但旋即想要完全脱离。


Ordained to the ministry in the Church of England, Williams discovered Puritanism, a reform movement that developed within the Church of England, during his first parish duty. He converted. Soon after, he was asked to be minister in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Leaving behind the religious intolerance under England's King Charles I, he and his wife journeyed across the ocean to join the "American Experiment" in Boston in 1631. At first, Williams just wanted to reform the Church of England; soon, he sought separation completely.
