Dr David Gehring of the University of Nottingham will provide a setting for understanding religious exile during the early modern period. The decision to leave one’s homeland was never taken lightly, but many sought religious freedom and liberty of conscience by making a home elsewhere. In this respect, the puritans of the Mayflower were continuing a tradition firmly identified with the Reformation but predating it by centuries.
