When John Winthrop spoke of the Puritans founding a "City upon a Hill," what did he mean? Their religious devotion would cause God to raise their city above all others. They should seek high ground as the most secure location for settlements. They should live concentrated in towns rather than in scattered settlements. They should be an example to England.
