Puritans were English Protestant reformers who followed the teachings of John Calvin. They were given the name "puritans" because they wanted to purify the Church of England of Catholic beliefs and practices. They believed that human nature was inherently depraved and that all men and women bore the guilt of Adam and Eve's original sin. Pilgrims were separatists. They believe the Church of England was too corrupt to be reformed. They felt that Christians who were "saved" should separate themselves from those who were damned. The "Saints" should only worship with those who have been saved, not with "sinners".
