From her picture on the British £5 note to the numerous Elizabeth Fry Societies worldwide, Elizabeth Fry (1780-1845) is well known for her work for prison reform. But less well known is how her Quaker Faith inspired this work, leading her to see the light within the impoverished and imprisoned. With Elizabeth Fry: A Quaker Life noted Quaker historian Gil Skidmore has brought together Fry's essential writings—some previously unpublished—from her journals, letters, and published work into a single volume. The result is a rich portrait of the struggles and anxieties behind the public persona of this "Quaker saint."
Gil Skidmore has spent many years researching the lives and writings of early Quakers. Her publications include Strength in Weakness: Writings of Eighteenth-Century Quaker Women in the Sacred Literature Series (Yale University Press).
