конгрегационалисты (приверженцы кальвинизма, главным образом в англоязычных странах первоначально—радикальные пуритане; то же, что индепенденты). Главное отличие от пресвитериан — полная автономность церковных общин).
Adherents of a form of church government in which each congregation or local church acts as an independent, self-governing body. Brought to America on the "Mayflower" in 1620, the doctrine holds that each local Protestant church is free to control its own affairs. In the 17th century Congregationalism was practically a state religion in New England. Congregationalists founded Harvard, Yale, Williams, Amherst and many other colleges. Church membership increased following the Great Awakening (1734-1744) in which Jonathan Edwards was the leading figure. In 1931 the Congregationalists merged with the Christian Church to form the General Council of the Congregational and Christian Churches of the U.S. The combined churches have over 2,000,000 members.
