George Fox and Early Quaker Culture

The Quakers, or the Religious Society of Friends, are generally known today as an inclusive and tolerant movement, broadly Christian, committed to working for peace and consensus, socially activist, politically radical and culturally liberal, although, at the time of their inception in the 1650s, their reputation was less benign. This introductory chapter sets out the purpose of the book, which is to explore early Quaker discourse, comprising not only Friends' words but also their deeds. Their written testimonies, warnings and exhortations are examined, but so too are accounts of the ways that they inhabited and moved through the social and material world. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
