2 Answer

  • "B. Americans still valued the Puritan sense of duty and love of learning" is the best answer, but most Americans really admired the Puritans for their work ethic as well.
  • The correct option is B

    Puritanism was a radical faction of Calvinist Protestantism, which had its origin in the English reformist period that developed during the reign of Elizabeth I. During the sixteenth century, an important sector of the Church of England felt that the definitive break with the Church Catholic had not finished producing, since much of the liturgy and beliefs remained very similar. On the other hand, Anglicanism was too close to the English royal power, obedient to its decisions and, therefore, arbitrary according to the conjunctures of the moment.
