Walking in the way of peace : Quaker pacifism… | Victoria Regional Meeting Library | TinyCat
Weddle focuses primarily on one historical moment - King Philip's War, which broke out in between English settlers and Indians in New England. Among the settlers were Quakers, adherents of the movement that had gathered by out of the religious and social turmoil of the English Civil War.
King Philip's War confronted the New England Quakers with the practical need to define the parameters of their peace testimony - to test their principles and to choose how they would respond to violence. The Quaker governors of Rhode Island, for example, had to reconcile their beliefs with the need to provide for the common defense.
Others had to reconcile their peace principles with such concerns as seeking refuge in garrisons, collecting taxes for war, carrying guns for self-defense as they worked in the fields, and serving in the militia. Indeed, Weddle has uncovered records of many Quakers engaged in or abetting acts of violence, thus debunking the traditional historiography of Quakers as saintly pacifists.
