This chapter discusses the distrust between Quakers and the clergy. Suspicion and hatred between churchmen and Quakers were provoked by the doctrinal views of Friends, clear refusal to accept church authority, and the Quaker challenge to the legitimacy of tithe payments. Quakerism carried in its train more than aggressive proselytizing in the parish and disrespect of clerical authority.
