Francis Bacon played a leading role in the establishment of British colonies in the New World, even drafting the charters of the Virginia colony. The utopian principles described in his work The New Atlantis were an inspiration for Rosicrucian communities in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. He wrote, concerning the establishment of colonies, “To make no extirpation of the natives under pretense of planting religion: God surely will no way be pleased with such sacrifices.”
