The Journey to the Mayflower: God’s Outlaws and the Invention of Freedom
2020 sees the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower – the ship that took the Pilgrim Fathers to the New World. It’s a foundational event in American history, but it began as an English story, which pioneered the idea of religious freedom. Stephen Tomkins tells this fascinating story – one that is rarely told as an important piece of English, as well as American, history – that is full of contemporary relevance: religious violence, the threat to national security, freedom of religion and tolerance of dangerous opinions.
