Puritan

A member of the conservative Protestant community that attempted to reform the Church of England along purer or more austere lines. Chief among its tenets was the rejection of hierarchic structure within the Church and conformity to codes of conduct based on Scripture. Puritanism was the dominant form of religion in the colonies for more than a century, beginning with the Plymouth landing in 1620.
