Like most American Puritan writers, Edward Taylor was a minster. Difficulties persisted during the nearly sixty years Taylor faithfully tended to the spiritual needs of his flock in Westfield. He was born in England to a Puritan family, and he came to Boston in 1668 after losing a teaching position in England because he refused to take an oath contrary to his religious beliefs. Once there, he trained for the ministry at Harvard College. The town was under constant threat of attack during King Philip’s War, the great Indian war of the 1670’s in which two-thirds of the villages of Massachusetts Bay were damaged or destroyed.
