2. About The Shakers
One of the numerous religious sects who emigrated to American shores in search of religious freedom, the shakers followed Mother Ann Lee to the United States in 1774.
About the Shakers
The Shakers, or United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing, are the most enduring and successful of the many communitarian societies established in America in the 18th and 19th centuries. The first Shakers, led by Ann Lee, came to America from Manchester, England, in 1774 seeking a place to freely practice their religious beliefs. Near Albany, New York, they established the foundation for a unique sect which has endured for more than 220 years. The early Shakers traveled through New England and New York, attracting converts who were impressed by the kind of personal, spiritual relationship with God preached by Ann Lee. Converts gathered into communities, bound by their shared faith and a commitment to common property, celibacy, confession of sins, equality of men and women, pacificism and separation from the world. By the 1830s nineteen Shaker communities had been established in New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Shakerism reached its peak in the mid-1800s, with an estimated five thousand members. Despite economic success, however, the Shakers never lost touch with the spiritualism that was at the heart of their beliefs. Although whirling, trembling, shaking and other ecstatic worship gave way to more orderly dancing and singing in religious services, Shakers continued to lead lives of purity and devotion to God.

  • Name: Shakers (The United Society of Believers)
  • Founder: Ann Lee
  • Date of Birth: February 29, 1736
  • Birth Place: Manchester, England
  • Year Founded:
  • History: The Shakers are one of the few success stories resulting from the proliferation of communitarian and millenarian groups in eighteenth and nineteeenth century Europe and America. They splintered from a Quaker community in Manchester, England (Gidley and Bowles 1990). James Wardley, its preacher, had absorbed the teachings of the millenial French Prophets and his community began to evolve around 1746 (Melton 1992). The members were known as the Shaking Quakers and were viewed as radical for their communion with the spirits of the dead and impassioned shaking that would occur at their services (Horgan, 1982; Robinson 1975). As radicals, all the members were harrassed, including a young married woman named Ann Lee. Fervent from a young age, Ann had a revelation during a long imprisonment that she was the Second Coming of Christ, the vital female component of God the Father-Mother (Bainbridge 1997; Gidley and Bowles 1990; Horgan 1982; Robinson 1975).

    Shakers and Shakerism
    A Research Guide
    The Research Libraries of The New York Public Library collect extensively on Shakers and Shakerism, a religious movement formally known as the United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Coming. This Christian body has received considerable scholarly and popular attention. Although initially related to elements of Quakerism, the Shakers developed an idiosyncratic religious expression which included communal living, productive labor, celibacy, and a ritual noted for its dancing and shaking. While the eclectic nature of Shaker theology has been the focus of scholarly attention, the distinctive craftsmanship and folk art of Shaker lifethe results of an avowed commitment to a life of perfectionhave attracted popular interest. A significant aspect of Shakerism is its founding by a woman, Mother Ann Lee, who was regarded by her followers as the second incarnation of Christ. Although the movement began in England under Ann Lee in 1758, the small body of believers removed itself to America under her leadership in 1774. Shakerism's unique role in American social and cultural history has manifested itself in a significant literature, by members and outsiders alike, much of which has been collected by the Research Libraries.

    6. The Quaker Corner: Differences Between Shakers And Quakers
    From JTR Encyclopedia of Religion Website? Date Sat, 7 Jun 1997 220413 0400 Does anyone have a good explanation of the difference between shakers and Quakers?
    Subject: Shakers/Quakers
    Encyclopedia of Religion Website?
    Date: Sat, 7 Jun 1997 22:04:13 -0400 Does anyone have a good explanation of the difference between Shakers and Quakers? My daughter asked me to explain this, and I really don't feel comfortable giving her an answer. I was looking for a website that has a brief history/description of the world's religions and was very disappointed in what I found. Is there something like an Encyclopedia of Religions on the internet? Any suggestions would be helpful. While Shakers have nearly died out, Quakerism, though limited in numbers by comparison to mainline and evangelical Protestants, is alive and growing, both in the USA and in Africa and South America and other nations overseas. Many have today adopted the custom of having a person designated as primarily a pastor, and most are neither white English speaking nor North American, since the greatest growth in the past generation has been outside of England and the USA. This is a great abridgment and oversimplification of the histories of the two groups, Quakers and Shakers, but gives you an indication of the major differences. For a good short readable history of Quakers, I recommend to you Howard Brinton's *Friends for 300 Years*. I hope this helps thee.

    Who were the Shakers?
    The first Shaker settlement was established near Albany, New York in 1776. Called the United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing , the original group of eight was inspired by mystic and founder Ann Lee to leave Manchester, England for the new land. These "Shaking Quakers" arrived in New York City in 1774. They believed that a life of celibacy, confession of sin, and hard labor was the only way to total redemption. Their unsettling style of worship - singing, shouting and violent trembling in their fervor and communication with God - was scorned and considered profane by the traditional Christian religions of the time. By 1780, many converts came into the sect and communities were being settled and organized throughout the Northeast. Mother Ann's much quoted: " Put your hands to work and hearts to God ," was the essence of Shaker living and religion. They sought to live separately from the " world's people ," to produce all the goods needed for their own purposes and to produce income for the purchase of land. Many talents and occupations contributed to a legacy of fine craft and ingenuity, best known are the simple yet beautiful Shaker-made furnishings and tools.
    " Do your work as though you had a thousand years to live, and as if you were to die tomorrow.

Founded in Englandin 1747 the shakers practiced a religion that was also a lifestyle.
    O ne of the numerous religious sects who emigrated to American shores in search of religious freedom, the Shakers followed Mother Ann Lee to the United States in 1774. Here they established several colonies the first in 1776 at Nikayuna near Albany, NYwhose governing principals included celibacy and agrarian communal living. The term Shakers, originally used as a pejorative for members of a dissenting Quaker church which called itself the United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing, referred to the sect's ecstatic form of worship. Founded in England in 1747 the Shakers practiced a religion that was also a lifestyle. The members lived in gender segregated, dormitory-like housing, but came together to work, and pray. Like the Quakers they believed in personal communication with a God who was both male and female and in the ability to find and give voice to the Inner Light. Those expressions took the form of hymns and work songs, of which SIMPLE GIFTS is the most famous, as well as rhythmic swaying and "dancing" when the spirit moved them.
    Besides leading a simple but comfortably self-sufficient existence from the fruits of their land, the Shakers came to be known for their architecture, crafts, and furniture. Shaker design, with its clean, economic lines, is the quintessential statement of the happy marriage of form and functiona tangible embodiment of the Shaker credo: "Beauty rests on utility."

    The Shakers, a member of the United Society of Believers in Christ's second appearing, was one of the utopian farming communities of the early 1800's. More than a farming group, they were dedicated to a life of perfection, invented many time-saving tools and machines, and created distinctive styles of architecture, furniture, and handicrafts. With their beginnings in England, the Shaking Quakers were a small branch of radical English Quakers. They were known for their shaking, dancing, shouting, and signing in their religious rituals. Living in Manchester, they were persecuted in their early years. The Shakers attracted a young woman named Ann Lees, whose last name was shortened to Lee. Her decision to join was strongly influenced by the death of all four of her children, three of whom died as an infant and one who died as a toddler. From her experiences, she became increasingly opposed to male-female relationships. Her belief in celibacy became central to the nature of the Shakers. Becoming more and more vocal, the Shaker meetings became more and more lively. The meetings were so intense that she was imprisoned for "profanement of the Sabbath." When she was released, she had a series of visions of the Christ. She believed, along with many other members of the group, that she was the female aspect of God's dual nature as the second incarnation of Christ. In 1774, a portion of the Shakers migrated with Ann Lee to Niskeyuna (now Waterlivet), New York (green on map). At first, the group of nine were unable to find new followers. After a couple of years, Mother Ann, as she was being called, started to gather followers. James Whittaker continued the organization after the death of Ann Lee in 1784. At her death, the society had approximately one hundred members.
