Introduction to Week 2

Introduction to Week 2

Watch this short video, in which we will introduce the material to be covered this week.

We will hear about Fox’s arrival in Sedbergh from Angus Winchester, Hilary Hinds will explain why travel was so important for early Quakers, and we will discuss the place of “inwardness” as a theological idea.

Hilary will also help us understand the role that “the North” had in helping Quakers create shared and distinct identity.

Hopefully you will have a better understanding of the tagging feature new to this course now. In this week try to re-use tags which relate to an interesting theme, so others can focus down on the invaluable peer contributions. If you haven’t tried using a hashtag yet, give it a go this week! – #sociallearning #commentdiscovery
