Exploring the development of early Quaker theology
£95.00 – £165.00
To what extent were early Quakers influenced by the religious ideas that surrounded them? Drawing on Madeleine Ward’s recent research, we will explore developments in Quaker theology during the seventeenth century. As well as considering the overall shape of the early Quaker vision, we will give particular attention to changing understandings of “the Light within”. How much of this remains relevant in the modern world, and how might it inform our faith and practice today?
Stuart Masters coordinates Woodbrooke’s onsite course programme and leads courses exploring the Quaker way and its relationship to other traditions.
Madeleine Ward wrote her doctoral thesis on early Quaker theology and was the Henry J. Cadbury Scholar at Pendle Hill Quaker study centre from 2017 to 2018.
