Mary Dyer executed for religious liberty, freedom of conscience
Today, June 1, 2010, is the 350th anniversary of the death by hanging of my Quaker ancestor, Mary Barrett Dyer. She's my grandmother, 12 generations ago.
My other blog, Rooting for Ancestors, has an article about Antinomianism, Puritanism, and (uh-oh) you might even recognize features of religious institutions of the present! Read about Mary Dyer, a martyr for religious freedom, HERE.
