The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)

Religious Tolerance logo

Christian faith groups



“A Friend’s meeting, however silent, is at the very lowest a witness that
worship is something other and deeper than words, and that it is to the
unseen and eternal things that we desire to give the first place in our
lives. And when the meeting…is awake and looking upwards, there is much
more in it than this. In the united stillness of a truly ‘gathered’ meeting,
there is a power known only by experience, and mysterious even when most
familiar.” Caroline Stephen, (1908).

Overview and a disclaimer:

We are, then, in a power that has taken control of both the body and life or that has, if you like, taken control of life in general – with the body as one pole and the population as the other.” ~ M. Foucault (1976:252-3)

        “What we are dealing with in this new technology of power is not exactly society (or at least not the social body, as defined by the jurists), nor is it the individual body. It
