A new study pack for Quaker Meetings has been created by Juliana Minihan during the Eva Koch scholarship 2015 at Woodbrooke Friends Study Centre. The study pack features seven booklets about the lives of Quakers who had a radical commitment to equality and human rights based on their understanding of the divine. Each booklet is about 1500 words long and can be downloaded from the Quakers-in-Ireland website.
