Bibliography and summaries of English sects and religious dissidents of the Tudor, Stuart and Interregnum periods in Great Britain.
Quakers Summary An English religious sect ca. 1644-1660 known for their radical social theology. The Quakers had a major impact on English society during the Interregnum. After the Restoration (1660) the sect redirected itself and its efforts to a more internal enlightenment of the individual. Quakerism had it beginnings in the North of England. It was based on the outgrowth of the personal insights of George Fox (1624-1691) . Fox was born in Drayton-in-the-Clay, Leicestershire. Fox was apprenticed as a shoemaker. Between 1643-47, Fox went through his own religious conversion to find the "inner light" within himself. From his early experiences George Fox developed a new set of religious values based on the idea that all men were equal in the spirit of God. Some have suggested possible influences from early Baptists writings. Fox gathered small groups of religious converts from the Leicestershire area ca. 1644. These groups formed the early basis for his meetings of "Friends". Other groups were formed in Warwickshire ca. 1645, in Nottinghamshire ca. 1646, and in Derbyshire ca. 1647. Fox was imprisoned in Nottingham during 1649. Arrested under the Blasphemy Law in 1650, Fox was sent to prison in Derby. He spoke out against the vain and worldly practices that he saw in society. He also spoke about the coming Day of Judgment.

This Site: Discovery of America The Explorers Post Columbian Exploration Thirteen Original Colonies ... Indians Quakers . The sect of "Friends," who were called Quakers in derision, was founded at about the middle of the seventeenth century. At first they were called " Professors (or Children) of the Light," because of their fundamental principle that the light of Christ within was God's gift of salvationthat " Light which lighteth every man that cometh into the world." It is said that GEORGE FOX , the founder of the sect, when brought before magistrates at Derby, England, in 1650,told them to "quake before the Lord," when one of them (Gelvase Bennet) caught up the word "quake," and was the first who called the sect " Quakers. They were generally known by that name afterwards. They spread rapidly in England, and were severely persecuted by the Church and State. At one time there were 4,000 of them in loathsome prisons in England. The most prominent of Fox 's disciples was William Penn , who did much to alleviate their sufferings. Many died in prison or from the effects of imprisonment. Grievous fines were imposed, a large portion of which went to informers. They were insulted by the lower classes; their women and children were dragged by the hair along the streets; their meeting-houses were robbed of their windows; and, by order of King Charles and the Arch-

Excerpt from the History of Lancaster County by Dr. Frederick Klein, 1926
George Fox, a "sober-minded serious youth," born in Leicestershire in i624, "early had his mind turned to religious matters." He began to state his views, which were at least "unfamiliar" in those days of "formalism in religious observances." But he converted many to his belief, and ere long his I and of religious enthusiasts, known as "Children of Truth," or "Children of Light," or "Friends of Truth," were spreading his and their doctrines far and wide in Great Britain, on the European continent, and eventually in the West Indies and North America. The names by which this sect was known eventually crystallized into the "Religious Society of Friends, commonly called Quakers."
Friends came rapidly to Penn's colony. "Twenty-three vessels sailed up the Delaware during the year i1682, bringing probably 2,000 passengers. The Quakers predominated in governmental affairs in the province in the first decades; indeed it was not until the middle decades of the next century that the Quaker legislative hold on Pennsylvania was shaken, this being brought about mainly through the insistence of Benjamin Franklin and others that Pennsylvania appropriate funds to properly protect its settlers against the Indians, who were then in alliance with France, and were raiding the frontier, settlements near the Susquehanna.

change History
The Society of Friends began in the 1600's in England . A man named George Fox went around preaching his ideas to people, including a large group on Pendle Hill. He told them they could talk to God themselves - that they did not need a priest or minister to do it for them. Many people liked this idea; they found it helped them feel close to God. Together they started the Society of Friends. The government of England did not like this new religion; at the time it was against the law not to belong to the

    The Quakers are a form of Protestant Christianity which was started by George Fox in 1652 and which emphasizes the spiritual aspect of Christain faith and experience. The label Quakers was a derogatory term given to the Society of Friends because of their habit of "quaking" during services. According to tradition, George Fox was standing on Pendle Hill in northwest England when he received a vision from God directing him that instead of simply obeying doctrines and rules he should instead focus upon the "Inner Light," or ability of every person to directly perceive the glory and love of God. All religious truth derives from this immediate perception of God, but some aspects become lost in the translation to dogma and doctrine. Fox began to preach this new, experiential form of Christianity throughout England. He also added the ideas of pacifism and the rejection of sworn oaths, two things which drew suspicion from political authorities. Officials hounded his followers and threw them in jail for their refusal to take oaths and for not supporting the Church of England like they were supposed to.

Whilst most of Quaker activity in pursuit of Peace is active, proactive and preventative in its mission, it is good also to reflect on war and its causes so that we may thus be able to recognise and then avoid them. A Peace Reflection inspired at The National Memorial Quakers Quakers Home BOURNEMOUTH COASTAL AREA MEETING Who are we? Our formal name is the Religious Society of Friends. But we feel that our emphasis is upon spirituality rather than 'religion' as our name would imply. Although based in Christianity everyone is welcome to our meetings whatever faith or belief system they may uphold. If you are not sure about your religious or spiritual convictions then Quakerism may be an ideal opportunity to hep you explore these issues. This is because Quakers do not have a creed. They do not say what one should or should not believe or say. For this reason they are not evangelists and it is sometimes difficult to grasp what it is exactly that they believe in. We believe that God speaks to us as individuals and that we can speak to him/her directly. We communicate with the spirit and receive our spirituality in ways that are very special to each one of us. Whether it be by silent prayer, or occasional spoken ministry during our Meetings for Worship, whether it be via some form of artistic expression such as sculpture or painting or poetry, each one of us has the ability to commune with God, (or whatever term you feel is appropriate for that great spiritual force).

    Quakerism's 17th century English founders envisioned it as the restoration of original Christianity, and like the first Christians, were imprisoned, tortured, and executed for their beliefs. In the 17th and 18th centuries, large numbers of Friends emigrated to the American Quaker colonies, where they formed prosperous settlements in New Jersey, Rhode Island, Delaware, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. The vast majority of the 300,000 Friends today are Pastoral, and about half live in Bolivia, Guatemala, and Kenya. About 90,000 Liberal and Pastoral Quakers live in North America. Perhaps 400 practicing Conservative Friends live in Ohio, Iowa, and North Carolina, mostly in the same rural areas we have occupied for 200 years.

    To find religion itself, you must look inside people and inside yourself. And there, if you find even the tiniest grain of true love, you may be on the right scent. Millions of people have it and dont know what it is they have. God is their guest, but they havent the faintest idea that s/he is in the house. So you mustnt only look where God is confessed and acknowledged. You must look everywhere to find the real religion... Living with God is not an apparition but a wordless and endless sureness. Like the silence of two friends together. Bernard Canter, (1962).
    European history:
    The movement was founded in England by George Fox (1624-1691), a nonconformist religious reformer. At the age of 19, he left home on a four year search, seeking answers to questions which had troubled him since his childhood. He sought guidance from a variety of the country's spiritual leaders. He gradually became disillusioned with those leaders and with the existing Christian denominations. At the age of 23, he heard a voice, saying

    Society of Friends - Quakers
    General Information The Society of Friends, commonly called Quakers, is a body of Christians that originated in 17th century England under George Fox. In 1988 the society had 200,260 members, with heavy concentrations in the United States (109,000), East Africa (45,000) and Great Britain (18,000). Quakers unite in affirming the immediacy of Christ's teaching; they hold that believers receive divine guidance from an inward light, without the aid of intermediaries or external rites. Meetings for worship can be silent, without ritual or professional clergy, or programmed, in which a minister officiates. Although their antecedents lie in English Puritanism and in the Anabaptist movement, the Society of Friends was formed during the English Civil War. Around 1652, George Fox began preaching that since there was "that of God in every man," a formal church structure and educated ministry were unnecessary. His first converts spread their faith throughout England, denouncing what they saw as social and spiritual compromises and calling individuals to an inward experience of God. In spite of schism and persecution, the new movement expanded during the Puritan Commonwealth (1649 - 60) and after the restoration of the monarchy (1660). By openly defying restrictive legislation, Friends helped achieve passage of the Toleration Act of 1689. BELIEVE

    The Quakers , formally known as the Religious Society of Friends , comprise a small, radical, Protestant denomination formed during the religious upheaval in 17th century England who sought the revival of original Christianity . They earned the name "Quakers" for how members shook, or "quaked", reflecting their struggle against their inner motives "under the Light." Many migrated to America, especially to Philadelphia in the colony of Pennsylvania , which was owned by Quaker leader William Penn . Quakers were active leaders of many American reform movements past and present, especially abolition of

    Quakers in the Anti-slavery Movement
    Before the eighteenth century, very few white men questioned the morality of slavery. The Quakers were among these few. The doctrines of their religion declared an issue such as slavery to be unjust. By 1775, the Quakers founded the first American United States. The Quakers were radical Christians. They believed that all people were equal in the sight of God, and every human being was capable of receiving the "light" of God’s spirit and wisdom. They also were against violence. Quakers were known for their simple living and work ethic. Therefore, to the Quakers, slavery was morally wrong. It was as early as the 1600s that Quakers began their fight against slavery, and thus the beginning of the abolitionist movement. They debated, made speeches, and preached to many people. By 1696, they made their first official declaration for abolitionism in Pennsylvania, in which they declared they were not going to encourage the importation of slaves.
