Diggers and Quakers
14 June 2022, Online
This Woodbrooke online session will explore the fascinating similarities between the writings of Digger leader, Gerrard Winstanley in the 1640s, and those of early Quaker minister, James Nayler in the 1650s.
The material covered in this session will help you to understand how the early Quaker movement emerged out of an already existing radical Puritan milieu. To what extent was James Nayler a representative of Leveller and Digger radicalism in the 1650s? Might this help explain why he was treated so brutally by the Second Protectorate Parliament?
