You have no power over my body, neither can you do me any harm. I fear none but the great Jehovah, which hath foretold me of these things, and I do verily believe that he will deliver me out of your hands.
Anne Hutchinson at Trial
Ever wonder how Wikipedia will document your life story in 300 years? I feel like I just read mine when I perused Anne Hutchinson‘s.
I always just kind of dismissed her as a nut — you know, an outspoken crazy woman with a sad obstetric history that ticked off a powerful man who simply labeled her a heretic. Nothing of consequence there, right?
Oh, dear me.
Needless to say, I’m not going to be inviting in any group of wandering natives anytime soon.
