Abstract

Participation in popular, or worldly, culture was a moot point for the early Friends. Although they were not encouraged to do so many still took part in aspects of male or female culture, but experienced tension between Quaker and 'carnal' ideals of behaviour. This article considers the tensions between Friends and the world in the areas of dress, deportment and other areas of contact with the 'world.'
