What were the religions in colonial Maryland?
The colony was created as a shelter for Roman Catholics fleeing religious persecution from their king. Later on their founder, Lord Baltimore, gave the colony religious freedom to attract other settlers.
The religions were diverse and included: Pilgrims Separatists Non-Separatists Anglicans Catholics Puritans Quakers Friends Baptists German Baptists (now "Church of the Brethren", often wrongly referred to as "Dunkards") Religions required adherence within their own groups. They weren't so much intolerant of other religions, but intolerant of division and lack of discipline to the rules within their own religions.
