I see someon has AP US History like me SAME exact question so in New England innocent witches were dying because of a governtment with a great influence by the church

--In New England, except in RI, the Puritan/Congregationalist faith was the established church. Ministers received financial support from taxes. There wasn't much religious tolerance, and religion was a huge part of everyday life. The Halfway Covenant would be a good thing to put into your answer. Eventually, New England started to shift away from strict Puritanism. They started to preach about good works, which was associated with the Anglican church.
