Man and the Quakers


A fascinating case study of the experiences of early Quakers in the Isle of Man during the mid-to-late seventeenth century. 

The book seeks to highlight the unique geographical, social and religious conditions and history of the Manx as well as explore the Quaker movement in its wider context, with particular reference to the English and Irish experience of civil wars, fear of Catholic intrigue and Puritan political and religious activism. 

The book seeks to understand a religious movement, whose adherents were subject to fines, imprisonment, transportation and Excommunication, balancing rigorous analysis with an appreciation of the poignant, human experience that shaped its history.
