About Dr. John Clarke:

John Clarke (1609-1676) was a highly educated physician, statesman and Baptist Minister. He came to America seeking freedom to practice his faith without fear, or under the strict rule of the King. In 1651 Dr. Clarke was arrested, jailed and sentenced to 20 lashes on the whipping post for holding an "unlawful service". He was resonate that no one has the right to govern or convict any person for their religious beliefs.

Overcoming personal sacrifices and risk of treason, Dr. Clarke wrote the Royal Charter of 1663 & secured from King Charles II on July 8, 1663 granting Religious and Civil Liberties to the Colony of RI. 126 years before the Constitution of the United States.

A non-conformist, Clarke believed that secular government should peacefully coexist with religion, and he became a seminal figure in applying the separation of church and state.

Dr. John Clarke receives little recognition for his well earned world changing contributions. Though our Historical Drama, we aim to set the facts straight and honor him to provide his rightful place in history.

We thank you for your support! 

Of paramount importance to Dr. John Clarke was the Charter of 1663‘s explicit guarantee of religious freedom. It excused Rhode Islanders from conformity with the Anglican Church “because some of the people…cannot, in their private Opinions, conform to the publique exercise of religion…”

It also took some of the language from the Declaration of Breda:”
“that no person within the said colony, at any time hereafter shall be any wise molested [harassed], punished, disquieted, or called in question, for any differences in opinion in matters of religion, and do not actually disturb the civil peace of our said colony; but that all and every person and persons may, from time to time, and at all times hereafter, freely and fully have and enjoy his and their own judgments and consciences, in matters of religious concernments, throughout the tract of land hereafter mentioned, they behaving themselves peaceable and quietly…”
