Description
Information
Although George Fox (1624-91) came from humble origins, he went on to become the foremost figure of a major international religious movement - the Quakers (Society of Friends), originally a radical force in the aftermath of the English Revolution. The Journal, initially dictated to his step-son-in-law when they were both imprisoned in the mid-1670s, combines burning rage against social injustice and a visionary sense of God 'rising' through all creation with a forthright account of his own persecution and suffering. For this new edition, Nigel Smith has 'cleaned up' a difficult text to enhance the coherence of the main narrative, while retaining the immediacy and excitement of the original. Four appendices - extracts from Fox's Letters, descriptions of his travels in Ireland and America and William Penn's Preface to the first printed edition - supplement the main text.
