Quaker Renaissance

John Wilhelm Rowntree plays a major part in the ‘Quaker Renaissance’ and travels to Jerusalem, via Italy. He meets Rufus M. Jones two years later, in Switzerland. Jones is a towering figure in the history of Quakerism, professor of philosophy and editor of the American Friend. He and John Wilhelm establish a deep and long lasting friendship.
