Course Details

What are the roots of the Quaker way? How were early Friends influenced by their religious context? This online course will consider the connections between Quakers and other radical groups, such as the Beguines, the Rhineland Mystics, the Anabaptists, the Family of Love, and the Radical Puritans. We will look at how late medieval movements, the radical wing of the Reformation, and the English Revolution helped shape the religious culture out of which the Quaker movement emerged.

About every five days throughout the course, new material will be released which will include videos and reading, along with discussion forums to connect with the tutor and others on the course. Guide dates are given to work on each section of the material however you are free to work at your own pace. The tutor, Stuart Masters, will also probably arrange a live Q&A session towards the end of the course, if participants are interested. The expected time commitment for the course is two to three hours per week.

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 minister, James Nayler.
