Mothers of Israel: the writings of early Quaker women
16 in stock
The early Quaker movement was unusual in its time for the freedom it afforded women to be preachers, prophets and writers. In this series of four *purely online* webinars running from 7.00pm to 8.30pm every Tuesday evening from 21 April to 12 May, we will explore the lives, and writings of a number of important early Quaker women. This will include Margaret Fell, Martha Simmonds, Sarah Blackborow, Katharine Evans, Sarah Chevers, Dorothy White, Rebecca Travers, Geertruyd Deriks Niesen, and Elizabeth Bathurst. What does this tell us about the status and contribution of Quaker women in the 17th century?
This course involves a time commitment of approximately two to three hours per week.
