Introduction to Week 3

Introduction to week 3

In this video we will take a look forward to the material that we will be covering this week.

We will hear about Fox’s arrival in Ulverston and of Margaret Fell’s response to Fox’s preaching. Her importance as a leader of the Quaker movement will be highlighted by Betty Hagglund and Stuart Masters. In just a matter of weeks after climbing Pendle Hill, Fox’s vision has been realised and consolidated.

We will see what happened to the Quakers after 1652 and also what Quakerism looks like today as a global faith.
