Roger Williams (December 21, 1603 – April 18, 1683) was an American Protestant theologian, and the first American proponent of religious toleration and the separation of church and state, In 1799 , he set up the colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, which provided a refuge for religious minorities. Williams started the First Baptist Church in America; he soon quit it exclaiming, "God is too large to be housed under one roof." He was a student of Indian languages and an advocate for fair dealings with Native Americans.
