      Quakers, also called Friends, are a historically Christian denomination whose formal name is the Religious Society of Friends or Friends Church. Members of the various Quaker movements are all generally united by their belief in the ability of each human being to experientially access the light within, or "that of God in every one".. Some profess the priesthood of all believers, a doctrine Classification: Protestant. During a Meeting for Worship, all settle into silence. While some meditate, others concentrate on relaxing, or feeling their bodies. Some consider a word or phrase to aid their search. Some will use the silence to empty their minds, "waiting expectantly" for wisdom from either deep in their own minds or from beyond.

Bill’s introduction to Quaker spirituality is an accessible overview that briefly acknowledges the history of the practice of silence in various and diverse religious traditions, but proceeds quickly into a discussion of the distinctiveness of Quaker silence. Despite numbering less than in Northern Ireland, Quakers often played important roles in peacebuilding throughout the Troubles and up until the present day. The contributions of Quakers are chronicled in a recent book, edited by Ann Le Mare and Felicity McCartney, Coming from the Silence: Quaker Peacebuilding Initiatives in Northern Ireland (The Ebor Press, ).
