Online Version of William Rogers 1680 text "The Christian Quaker..."

In 1680 Friend William Rogers published a book documenting why some founding Friends were not of the same conscience as George Fox (and those who followed him) concerning the institutionalization of the gathering of Friends by establishing a specific set of outward forms and practices.

The following links comprise the whole of Rogers' work in the form of a facsimile of the original text. This is not a modernized form of the text. It is a copy I have compiled of the 17th century text rendered into PDF format.

Please let me know if there are any issues with downloading the sections.

I am working on a modernized version of the book along with annotations and cross-references. However, it will not be available any time soon. At least there is an electronic version now available for those who are interested.

The integration of page numbers indicators that match that actual page numbers in the original document is complete.

The process of proofreading and formatting the text is the current focus. Also, the number of related texts that will be appended to "The Christian Quaker" as a supplemental section is under serious consideration as most of them required keyboarding also.

Finally, I’ve brought this project to a point where I can publish the a first (by me) printing in electronic format.

A newly keyboarded version of “The Christian Quaker...” has been published in HTML format and as a pdf.
