Robert Barclay was a 17th-century Scottish Quaker and considered one of the most important Quaker authors. His most important work, ‘An Apology for the True Christian Divinity,’ is often thought to be “the most impressive theological writings of the century and often marked by the eloquence of lofty moral convictions.” (Garnet, 226). ‘Apology’ was written to be an elaborate statement for the Quakers to hold certain religious fundamentals which were outlined in one of Barclay’s earlier works, the ‘Theses.’

 

According to the DNB,

“Barclay’s great book, ‘The Apology,’ is remarkable as the standard exposition of the principles of his sect and is not only the first defense of those principles by a man of trained intelligence, but in many respects one of the most impressive theological writings of the century.”

 

A rare 1736 edition of Barclay’s ‘Apology.’

BARCLAY, Robert

 

An apology for the true Christian divinity, as the same is held forth, and preached, by the people called, in scorn, Quakers: being a full explanation and vindication of their principles and doctrines, by many arguments, deduced from scripture and right reason, and the testimonies of famous authors, both ancient and modern; with a full answer to the strongest objections usually made against them. Presented to the King. Written in Latin and English by Robert Barclay, and since translated into High Dutch, Low Dutch, French and Spanish, for the information of strangers.

 

London: Printed and sold by T. Sowle Raylton and Luke Hinde, at the Bible in George-Yard, Lombard-street, 1736.
