Radical Spirituality: the Early History of the Quakers – online course

 A course entitled Radical Spirituality: the early history of the Quakers begins next month.

The course will take place online and will consist of a variety of elements. These include videos filmed in and around what is called ‘1652 country’, the area that Quakerism really took off as an organised mass movement. We visit the key sites of Pendle Hill, Firbank Fell and Swarthmoor Hall. Other films look at the place of travel for early Quakers and the significance of the movement starting in the north of England. We learn about the people, the places and the ideas associated with the start of Quakerism. There is text to reflect on and audio clips to help us ‘hear’ the writing more easily. In Week 1 of the course we’ll reflect on the civil war context and provide an introduction to Quaker founder George Fox’s life

The course is due to begin on 3 October 2016.
