The Charters and General Laws of Massachusetts” is a rare, early 19th-century book outlining the laws established in colonial Massachusetts. This book, like many early law books, covers basic day-to-day laws – requirements for fishermen, town establishment, ship building, and the like. However, this work allows the modern day to reader to peer into the early colonial laws saturated in puritanism that remained in place into the 19th century. Some examples include:

  • Anti-Catholic, Anti-Anabaptist, and Anti-Quaker legislation (i.e. excommunication and/or ban of papists and Jesuits)
  • Torture
  • Polygamy
  • Incest
  • Cross-dressing
  • Heresy
  • Blasphemy
  • Idolatry
  • Witchcraft
  • Slavery
  • Indians
  • Rights of Minorities
