The Bay Colony’s ingenuous strategy for maintaining autonomy from metropolitan interests, whether it be in resisting the ecclesiastical hierarchy of the Anglican Church or the political control of the Ministry and Parliament, was to give considerable power to congregations and local communities, power that was protected through the right of the Massachusetts government after 1691 to incorporate them.
