Write 6 pages with APA style on American Jezebel by Eve Laplante. She further explains how the government issues entangle with the church issues as the puritans became divided from the Church of England (Kohlman 1). This meant that they needed to create a new church empire, by obtaining colonies. Eve Laplante has also written other books such as Salem Witch Judge, a biography of the judge who carried out the trial in which Anne was found guilty (Laplante 1). In the 1600s, asking a question was regarded as inappropriate, especially for women, but Anne Hutchinson not only asked a singular question, but many questions (LaPlante 30). That was illegal according to the biblical teaching at the worship places. Firstly, being a woman, and secondly, because these questions were directed to other people apart from her husband, and lastly, because she was teaching women about her own misgivings. She had believed that individuals could communicate with God without assistance from church ministers or even the Bible. This gave direct contradiction of the teaching of the long-established religion (Rlm73 2). However, the rest of the masses strictly adhered to the Bible, especially New Testament. It provided various teachings such as “women shall remain silent at worship” (Rlm73 3) and of these, there had been expectations that Puritan women had to follow: only men could talk, preach, ask and answer questions. “A woman should ask her husband if she had any question”. Instead, she continued to ask questions to church leaders, and as it is known, none was her husband. The Bible says,” women may teach only other women”, and was adhering to this by teaching women about the religious loopholes. However, this was acceptable, but she was moving away or rather preaching against the Puritan teachings (Rlm73 2). The Puritans had the privilege of worship, but were never allowed to think freely. Puritan church leaders gave teaching that people could only see or rather find God by only observing his teachings from the Bible, made possible through the ministers since they knew how to God’s teachings. Eventually, Hutchinson had been brought into particularly biased trial, but there was no woman to stand up for her (Rlm 4). Anne Hutchinson had been found culpable and was casted out of Boston (Rlm73 4). Her family relocated to Rhode Island where they stayed until her husband, William Hutchinson, died. In Rhode Island, free worship was not practiced, and no restrictions as long as there were tranquility in the community. In 1643, the family of Anne Hutchison was attacked and then beheaded by an Indian tribe (Rlm73 6). However, only the six youngest children of Anne Hutchinson were beheaded, and the seven children were able to avoid the brutal murders (Rlm73 6). She lived with the Indian tribe for several years, but later she returned to Boston where she was re-united with the older siblings (Rlm73 6). Later, she was married and moved to Rhode Island where she raised a loving family. Anne Hutchinson, bared 15 children, they all survived their childhood. However, this was extremely rare in the olden times. Having been a midwife (LaPlante 1), Anne knew kept her family well. Of these 15 children, six were killed by the Indians while two died of a plague in England. The five older children, as well as the youngest survivor, reached adulthood and had their own families.
