"Listing people by parish and probaby were because they were buried in this or that cemetary does not prove or disprove what faith they were, if any." ~ muggs99
Institutes of the Christian Religion, John Calvin (1540) http://www.iclnet.org/pub/resources/text/ipb-e/epl-cvinst.html Calvin's magnum opus. The most celebrated American historian, George Bancroft, called Calvin "the father of America," and added: "He who will not honor the memory and respect the influence of Calvin knows but little of the origin of American liberty." To John Calvin and the Genevan theologians, President John Adams credited a great deal of the impetus for religious liberty (Adams, WORKS, VI:313). This document includes a justification for rebellion to tyrants by subordinate government officials; this particular justification was at the root of the Dutch, English, and American Revolutions.
Works of Martin Luther http://www.iclnet.org/pub/resources/text/wittenberg/wittenberg-luther.html , The father of the Protestant Reformation, his principles were a major part of the American colonists' worldview.
On Secular Authority, Luther (1523). http://personal.pitnet.net/primarysources/secauth.html This document started the political discussion about religious liberty which led to the American Revolution. In this document Luther sets forth the idea of "two kingdoms," one is political and the other is spiritual, and the two ought be separate. President James Madison commended this "due distinction, to which the genius and courage of Luther led the way, between what is due to Caesar and what is due to God." (Madison to F.L. Schaeffer, December 3, 1821 http://personal.pitnet.net/primarysources/madisonluther.html ).
The Bondage of the Will, Luther (1524) http://www.truecovenanter.com/truelutheran/luther_bow.html . Luther claimed that this particular document was the cornerstone of the Protestant Reformation; it argues the idea of predestination and God's sovereignty, two principles which were paramount to many of the American colonists.
The Act of Supremacy, Henry VIII (1534) http://www.britainexpress.com/History/tudor/supremacy-henry-text.htm . By this act, the English Reformation began, and the pope was stripped of his jurisdiction over the English Church. This allowed Lutheran principles to make their way into the English church, and led to the birth of Puritanism.
