This chapter traces the arrival in 1633 of shiploads of hundreds of passengers from London to the New World settlements along the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Here the ministers aided the colonists in their zeal to “make confession of their faith” in Boston. While the male test testimonies were ground in the self-discovering “I”, testimonies by women were marked by spiritual and political incompleteness. As this mode of testimony of faith continued, individuals began to not only deceive him- or herself but entire congregations, ministers, and elders began to do the same.
