Can you compare Puritans and Quakers?

Answer

There are several similarities and differences that can be found when one compares Puritans and Quakers. Both groups were extremely devout and religious. However, the similarities stopped there. The Puritan movement rose in England in protest to the Church of England, founded by Henry VIII. When they came to the colonies, they tried to establish their strict Christianity as the law of the land. Quakers were also known as The Society of Friends. They were also Christians, but they were pacifists and had respect for others' religious beliefs.
