Primitivism, Radicalism, and the Lamb's War: The Baptist-Quaker Conflict in Seventeenth-Century England (Oxford Studies in Historical Theology)by T. L. Underwood
Synopses & Reviews
The mid-seventeenth century saw both the expansion of the Baptist sect and the rise and growth of Quakerism. At first, the Quaker movement attracted some Baptist converts, but relations between the two groups soon grew hostile. Public disputes broke out and each group denounced the other in polemical tracts. Nevertheless in this book, Underwood contends that Quakers and Baptists had much in common with each other, as well as with the broader Puritan and Nonconformist tradition. By examining the Quaker/Baptist relationship in particular, Underwood seeks to understand where and why Quaker views diverged from English Protestantism in general and, in the process, to clarify early Quaker beliefs.
Book News Annotation:
Clarifies early Quaker views and explains how their beliefs came to differ so significantly from those of other English Protestants. Previously unused tracts and manuscripts--produced by the Baptist- Quaker disputes and filled with accusations, clarifications, and rebuttals--are used to shed new light on the beliefs of the antagonists.
