ABSTRACT
The article compares the concepts of self-consciousness within the lives and rhetoric of the early colonial U.S. religious leaders John Winthrop and Roger Williams. Details are given profiling the cultural and religious contexts of both figures, contrasting the different manifestations of their mutually expressed concerns regarding outside perceptions of the Christian societies of New England. Particular attention is given to the role of different forms of class awareness between the two figures, citing the egalitarian views of Williams against the aristocratic views of Winthrop.
