      “The Maryland Design:” Religion in Early Maryland (Winter Speaker Series 2019)

The Calvert family, as English Roman Catholics, created a very liberal polity in their new Maryland colony that allowed numerous religious beliefs to freely worship. Silas D. Hurry, curator of collections and archaeological laboratory director at Historic St. Mary's City, will review what was known as the “Maryland Design” and explain how it was made real on the landscape of St. Mary’s City. The discussion will incorporate the Calvert’s concept of liberty of conscious, the artifacts of Roman Catholicism, the architecture of the Jesuit’s brick chapel, and the end of this unique experiment with the establishment of a government supported Church of England in the 1690s.
