I puritani (The Puritans) is an opera in three acts by Vincenzo Bellini. The music was set to a libretto by Count Carlo Pepoli. The subject centered on Roundheads and Cavaliers which some sources state was based on Walter Scott's novel Old Mortality.

This 1973 recording stars Joan Sutherland and Luciano Pavarotti. Richard Bonynge conducts.
