Ecumenics without churchs by www.quaccheri.it

On this date in 1660 (June 1st), a woman named Mary Dyer was executed by hanging in Boston, Massachusetts. She was a Quaker, a traveling preacher, one of several who repeatedly defied a Puritan law banning Quakers from Massachusetts Bay Colony. She was about 50 years old. Some sources say her execution took place on Boston Common. Actually, the gallows at the time were located about a mile south, in the Boston Neck area.
