Quakers: Their History, Beliefs and Meticulous Records

Quakers, the Religious Society of Friends

Quakers are members of a group with Christian roots that began in England in the 1650s. The formal title of the movement is the Society of Friends or the Religious Society of Friends.

Their founder was George Fox (1624-1691) of Leicestershire, England. Fox never intended to form a denomination, but rather tried to take belief and believers back to the original and pure form of Christianity. He was a religious activist who traveled around the country on a spiritual quest. Fox was imprisoned eight times for sharing views that annoyed the religious and political establishments of his time.

Refusal by the Quakers to take oaths or take their hats off before a magistrate, and their insistence on holding banned meetings in public, led to 6,000 Quakers being imprisoned between 1662 and 1670. The Quakers suffered for years from whippings, torture and imprisonment.

A joint effort of several authors who do find that nobody can keep standing at the side and that “Everyone" must care about what is going on in today’s world. We are a bunch of people who do not mind that somebody has a totally different idea but is willing to share the ideas with others and to be Active and willing to let others understand how "today’s decisions will influence the future”. Therefore we would love to see many others to "Act today".
