"The earth to be spann'd, connected by net-work...
The oceans to be cross'd, the distant brought near,
The lands to be welded together." (Walt Whitman, d. 1892)

Welcome to the

QUAKER ELECTRONIC ARCHIVE

Founded in early 1994 as the first general-purpose Quaker site on the Internet, this site contains Quaker writings as well as documents such as minutes and resource guides and basic information about Quakerism. The archive offers a keyword search function, and links to other sites of interest to Friends are also provided. (PLEASE NOTE: Because of thousands of "spam" messages, the message board has been shut down.) This site is maintained by George Amoss Jr., a member of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). Contact


Thou asks further whether the name of Christ may be known to all the world by the [L]ight within them, without Scripture or tradition? I say, yea, and by nothing else without it, for the name of Christ consists not of letters and syllables, but in righteousness, mercy and judgment, &c., which name none can know but by the [L]ight of the [W]orld, though many of you read your Bibles who are the greatest enemies to his name, such is your knowledge as appears by your practice. -- James Nayler, 1656

Shall the living Word be in the heart, and not the rule of the heart? Shall he speak in the heart, and the man or woman in whom he speaks run to the words of scripture formerly spoken, to know whether these be his words or no? Nay, nay, his sheep know his voice better than so. -- Isaac Penington, 1658
