ATLA is honored to have participated in the digitization of the Quarterly with the Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village community. We are just as excited to make the entire archive available online for the first time ever in the ATLASerials PLUS™ (ATLAS PLUS™) full-text collection.
For the first time, The Shaker Quarterly is now digitized and available to read in its entirety online. Published by the Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village from 1961 to 1996, Shaker Quarterly was the preeminent journal, newsletter, and occasional catalog of the Shaker community. Focused on Shaker history, religion, and theology, this journal provides a record of a Shaker legacy.
The Quarterly covered topics in Shaker history, theology and religion. It also often included devotionals, book reviews, and scholarly research as well as advertisements for Shaker-run initiatives. Many of the articles were written by the Shakers themselves. The Quarterly was the first regular Shaker periodical since the Manifesto ceased publication in 1899 and serves as an important chronicle of both a religion and a community.
Thanks to the partnership between the Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village and ATLA, scholars and researchers the world over will be able to read the chronicle of a community, culture and religion that thrived in the American northeast during the 19th and 20th centuries.
The entire full-text run of The Shaker Quarterly is available in ATLAS PLUS.
