Being Tolerated: Dutch America and the English, 1618-1715

I am applying for funds to complete an essential part of the research for my book manuscript. Being Tolerated takes a close look at the practice and experience of religious toleration at the crucial early phase of its development, tracing the impulse for toleration and colonial Americans' relationship to it in the middle colonies, widely considered to be the hearth of American religious pluralism. The Dutch figure at the center of my story because it was out of their colony of New Netherland that the middle colonies were created. My work focuses on the Dutch and their relationship to the English and to Swedish and German colonists. I am fluent in Dutch and German and have a reading knowledge of Swedish, all languages necessary for the completion of the book.
