Evans\u27s and Cheevers\u27s Quaker Missionary Travels

By Hui-chu Yu


In her article \u22Evans\u27s and Cheevers\u27s Quaker Missionary Travels\u22 Hui-chu Yu investigates Katharine Evans\u27s and Sarah Cheevers\u27s account of their experiences as Quaker missionaries in Malta between 1658-1662. For Evans and Cheevers traveling was a mission ordained by god and thus their journey is less a trip for the gratification of exploration than spiritual and physical trials. With a purpose to spread Quaker texts, Evans and Cheevers traveled to different lands such as Ireland and Malta. Although they perceived the hostility toward their belief, they still claimed to be god\u27s handmaids with an aim to preach their religious belief. Their attempt to challenge the belief of a society — an act that involves the transformation of a people\u27s mentality — inevitably caused cultural tension
