Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
This is an open question to readers here who have a broader knowledge of Quaker history than I do. I am wondering if the early Quakers had any relationships with the Cambridge Platonists. I have only recently become aware of them. Some of their doctrines seem similar to some Quaker perspectives (though admittedly I have at this time read very little). I have not come across any mention of interaction between Quakers and Cambridge Platonists. But the timing is right; the Cambridge Platonists were active in the mid-1600's. And some of the early Quakers, like Barclay, were intellectually very curious. And I am aware that continental Quietism was at play among Quakers from an early date. But, again, I haven't run across any histories who mention any crosscurrents between the two. I am thinking of influences going both ways.
