God in America: One: A New Adam

Special | 56m 1s

In New Mexico, Pueblo spirituality collides with the Franciscan missionaries' Catholicism. In New England, Puritan leader John Winthrop confronts religious dissenters within his ranks. And a new message of spiritual rebirth from evangelical preachers sweeps through the colonies, upending traditional religious authority and kindling a rebellious spirit that converges with the American Revolution.
