Quaker Communities in Early Modern Wales: From Resistance to Respectability

Richard Allen

    Allbwn ymchwil: Llyfr/AdroddiadLlyfradolygiad gan gymheiriaid


    Quakerism has long fascinated historians and religious scholars, and Richard Allen’s examination of the community’s rise and fall in Wales holds a wealth of new insights. The prominent role played by women, the resilience of Quakers in the face of a variety of forms of official persecution, the ways that education, careers, and marriage were determined by a strict code of conduct, and the reasons for Quakerism’s decline all come under consideration here. As the first scholarly analysis of Welsh Quakers, this book represents an important new contribution to our knowledge of the movement.
