Precisians one of the names given to the Puritans, or those who, about the time of the Commonwealth, evinced by their conduct that they were in earnest on the subject of religion. They were called precise because they condemned swearing, plays, gaming, drinking, dancing, and other worldly recreations on the Lord's day, as well as the time-serving, careless, and corrupt religion which was then in fashion.
