Maryland was founded by Roman Catholics who were fleeing persecution in England. The Puritans, Quakers, and other protestants who were being persecuted by England also fled to the colonies. Not all colonies were founded with religious intentions however. Southern colonies such as the Carolinas were founded for agriculture and Georgia was founded as a buffer state between the English colonies and Spanish controlled Florida.

Depending on what Religious group you belonged to influenced where one would settle in the new world. the New England area was dominatly Puritan and the middle Colonies were religiously tolerant while the Church of England was all over Virgina.

In some cases the colony was established because of discrimination against the religion. The Pilgrims and Quakers are examples of colonies established because of an religion.

Religion played a very large role in the development of society during the times of the New England Colonies. The Puritans were the first people to settle in these colonies and with their understandings of the Bible they were able to form structure, laws, ethics and morals. These believes also brought fear, a fear of the unknown and the fear of deviant behavior towards those in powers. It was this fear that later brought about the Salem Witch Trials and other massacres to the human race including slavery and the movement of Native Americans beyond the Mississippi River.

The culture of the New England colonies centered around their religious beliefs. They believed that the body should not be idle, and people should not be frivolous. They worked long hours. They read and wrote about religion. They did not play sports or spend time on leisure activities.
