Join us Saturday, May 7th, for the penultimate lecture in CFHA’s Quakerism in the Atlantic World series. The previous eight lectures have proven wonderful opportunities for thoughtful dialogue and engagement in the broader Quaker scholarly community. We’re excited to welcome our next presenter, Dr. Rosalind Johnson. She will present on her chapter, “’Quakers and Marriage Legislation in England in the Long Eighteenth Century.”
The virtual series runs every second Saturday. All lectures will take place at 0900 Pacific / 1200 Eastern / 1700 UK on Zoom. Following the chapters of the volume, each short lecture will run for thirty minutes and include a discussion period at the end. All are welcome to attend the lectures and are we encourage you to share the registration link with friends and colleagues who will find the series of interest.

Rosalind Johnson is visiting fellow at the University of Winchester, UK. She works as a researcher for a county history project in Wiltshire and previously taught at the universities of Winchester and Chichester. Her principal research interests lie in the field of religious history in the long eighteenth century, particularly the history of Quakers. She is currently working on the history of Quakers and marriage, and on the history of Quakers in the city of Salisbury, UK, and is particularly interested in the position of women in religious groups, in expressions of popular piety, and in examining how nonconformists interacted with their conformist neighbours. Her publications include “The Case of the Distracted Maid: Healing and Cursing in Early Quaker history,” Quaker Studies (June 2016) and “The Lives of Ejected Hampshire Ministers After 1662,” Southern History (2014). She is currently researching the extent of Quaker faithfulness to the tithe testimony.
