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 1765 edition of Barclay’s ‘Apology.’ This edition is the eighth overall English printing of this work but the first published by Baskerville.
