Through this thesis we have tried to inform the reader of the many details of the Quaker Religion, in order for people to better understand the trajectory of this Christian sect. We have divided the thesis into four chapters; the First Chapter is about the beginnings of the Quaker religion. This chapter refers to the time when this religion was founded; the chapter talks about the founder of Quaker religion. There is an explanation of the Quaker idea of communication with God, and the Quaker rejection of church ministers and rituals. The Second Chapter refers to how Quakers worked to end slavery. How they struggled against violence and how they have helped needy people. Also this chapter mentions some famous Quakers, such us John Woolman who bought slaves and later freed them to give them their liberty. Moreover, in this chapter we include some famous Catholic people who struggled in the same way against social evil. The Third Chapter explains how the Quakers religion made a contribution to the World Peace. Also the chapter deals with Quaker behavior in times of war, and Quaker activities to help people who suffer, including an important organization created by them in those times. The Fourth Chapter presents the Quakers of today. It describes where they are located and the changes that this Religion has undergone over the years.
