Abstract

The parable of the husbandman was of great significance to Protestants of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, for many early modern religious groups developed aspects of their beliefs and identities through its interpretation. This article considers the ways in which representations of the husbandman differed between Friends and other Protestants, and particularly evolved within Quakerism from the mid-C17th to mid-C19th.
