In the whole terminology of' history there are few words more difficult to define than "Puritan”, for it was never used by contemporaries with precisely the same significance, and it has denoted very different qualities at different epochs. It is a word that has borne so many doctrinal, dogmatic, political, and administrative, social meanings in the course of the past four centuries that it is hardly possible to present one definition acceptable to all.
