Biographical history

The Religious Society of Friends is a Quaker organization. The movement began under George Fox's leadership in England around 1647. The Friends rejected war, oaths, and a formal religious organization including a professional priesthood. They emphasize the personal aspect of religion and the inner guidance of the Holy Spirit, and so reject formal worship and the construction of church buildings. The abolition of slavery, penal reform, education of the poor and pacificism have been among the major concerns of the Quakers. A branch of the Religious Society of Friends was set up in Vancouver.
