God's government begun : the Society for Universal Inquiry and Reform, 1842-1846 by Thomas D Hamm( )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growing out of the most radical fringes of the abolitionist movement, Universal Inquiry and Reform brought together New England evangelicals with Hicksite Quakers from Ohio and Indiana. They founded eight utopian communities which, though short-lived, were the setting for the most radical questioning of antebellum American society. The advocates of Universal Inquiry and Reform renounced all forms of coercive government, relying instead on initiating the Government of God. They were fierce critics of competitive capitalism, looking instead toward an economy based on cooperation. They experimented with new forms of education. They advocated equality for women and played important roles in the early women's rights movement in the Old Northwest. In religion, they repudiated "sectism" and "priestcraft" for a religion of humanity that sometimes verged on atheism. Though they are less well-known than other reform groups of the time, theirs was one of the most ambitious communitarian movements of the nineteenth century

Liberal quakerism in america in the long nineteenth century, 1790-1920 by Thomas D Hamm( Book )

4 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas D. Hamm (Earlham College) argues that a self-conscious, liberal Quakerism emerged in North America between 1790 and 1920. It had three characteristics. The first was a commitment to liberty of conscience. The second was pronounced doubts about orthodox beliefs, such as the divinity of Christ. Finally, liberal Friends saw themselves as holding beliefs fully consistent with early Quakerism. Stirrings appeared as early as the 1790s. Hicksite Friends in the 1820s, although perceiving themselves as traditionalists, manifested all of these characteristics. When other Hicksites took such stances in even more radical directions after 1830, however, bitter divisions ensued. Orthodox Friends were slower to develop liberal thought. It emerged after 1870, as higher education became central to the Gurneyite branch of Orthodox Quakerism, and as some Gurneyites responded to influences in the larger society, and to the changes introduced by the advent of revivalism, by embracing modernist Protestantism

Richmond by Susan E King( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Founded by Quakers from North Carolina more than 200 years ago, Richmond boasts a rich and colorful history. White and black migrants from older parts of the United States joined emigrants from Ireland and Germany to create a diverse, flourishing, and at times contentious community. Railroads, the Whitewater Canal, and the National Road laid the foundations for economic growth before the Civil War, and Richmond grew steadily in population and prosperity from the Civil War until the late 20th century. Local folklore claims that at one time the city had more millionaires in proportion to population than any other place in the United States. While erecting remarkable homes and buildings, founding enduring institutions like schools, churches, and museums, and supporting at one time as many as six newspapers, Richmond produced memorable and colorful characters who left their mark not just in Richmond and Indiana, but around the United States
