Peace Testimony

The corporate Peace Testimony is perhaps the best known Quaker position. It was first articulated in the early years of the Quaker movement, and the refusal of violence has been central to Quaker thought ever since. An overview of historical and current thought on the Peace Testimony can be found in chapter 24 of Quaker faith & practice. More information about the ways in which it was understood and used at the time of the Foundations by conscientious objectors to the First World War draft, can be found in the White Feather Diaries.
