Newport, Rhode Island was founded in 1639 by religious dissidents who believed in the principle of soul liberty: the right of each person to their own religious beliefs. This sense of tolerance was more inclusive than was common anywhere else at the time and was codified in Rhode Island’s royal charter of 1662. Consequently, Newport was extremely religiously diverse, with over a dozen different congregations abiding together by the mid-18th century. (Newport Historical Society)
