Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
I was reading a brief biography of Madam Guyon by a Guyon scholar, Nancy James, who is an Episcopal Priest. James mentions that after Guyon was released from prison she lived out her days in southern France. During this period Guyon kept up an extensive correspondence and received visitors from far and wide. Among the visitors James mentions are Quakers from Pennsylvania. Madam Guyon lived from 1648 to 1717, so these would be Quakers from colonial Pennsylvania.
I have not heard about direct contact between Quakers and the continental Quietists previously. Are there any historians here who can direct me to sources regarding this visit? Was it an official visit from a Yearly Meeting, or did it consist of individual Quakers who had a specific leading to meet with her?
I find this kind of connection fascinating and would like to learn more about it.
