Course Details

The early Quaker movement was unusual in its time for the freedom it afforded women to be preachers, prophets and writers. In this online course, we will explore the lives, and writings of a number of important early Quaker women. This will include Margaret Fell, Martha Simmonds, Hannah Stranger, Sarah Blackborow, Rebecca Travers, Dorothy White, and Elizabeth Bathurst. What contribution did these women make to the development of the Quaker way?

This course involves a time commitment of approximately two to three hours per week. Each week there will be a range of audio-visual and written materials for you to engage with, and a discussion forum where you can share reflections and ask questions.




Stuart Masters has been a tutor at Woodbrooke for over ten years. His research, writing, and teaching interests focus on Quaker theology and spirituality and the connections between Quakerism and other Christian traditions. He is currently working on a book about the theology of the early Quaker minster, James Nayler.
