For other uses, see Shaker (disambiguation) The Shakers , a Protestant religious denomination officially called The United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing, originated in Manchester England in 1747 in the home of Jane and James Wardley. The Shakers developed from the religious group called the Quakers which developed in the 17th century. Both groups believed that everybody could find God within him or herself, rather than through clergy or rituals, but the Shakers tended to be more emotional and demonstrative in their worship. Shakers also believed that their lives should be dedicated to pursuing perfection and continuously confessing their sins and attempting to stop sinning. The 17th century was fraught with religious turmoil due to constant fighting between Protestants and Catholics. Religious wars led many to believe that the Millennium was at hand, and spirit possession began manifesting itself in many new forms. The 18th century saw the largest number and most diverse of these possessions, including visions, prophecy, and trances. These movements became a part of the more general religious awakening that spread through most of continental Europe north of the Alps between the late 17th century and 1740s, affecting the British Isles and the American colonies as well. Half a century later, the United States and England saw an emergence of many radical religious groups who formed Utopian societies including the

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."

French Camisards and Quakers: The French Camisards, whose religious beliefs inspired both the Quakers and Shakers, originated in southern France during the 17th century. Influenced by the French Calvinists, the Camisards, whose name originated from the Provence word camiso, or chemise (shirt), rebelled against the royal persecution of their faith by the French authorities. The Camisards held some of their leaders to be Prophets, whom they claimed heard the word of God. They battled the armies of the French King Louis XIV from 1702 to 1706. Losing the battle, some Camisard survivors fled to England, where they continued to practice their beliefs. It was when these exiles preached in England that some Quakers fell under their influence.

    The Last Ones Standing
    Only four Shakers are left in the world, all living in southern Maine. But if they can't attract converts to their celibate lifestyle and this really is the end for them, they have a plan to ensure that their legacy lives on forever.
    Left: Preserving Maine's Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village (including its historic buildings and 1,643 acres) from future development will take about $3.7 million. Right: At 49, Brother Arnold Hadd is the second youngest of the four remaining Shakers. (Globe Staff Photos / Janet Knott) July 23, 2006 THE FOUR ARE CONSPICUOUS in their plain Sunday best. The two men, both in their 40s, wear black or gray pants, white shirts, and houndstooth-check vests with the waist button undone. The two women, old enough to be their mothers, have on long, modest dresses in solid blue or green with wide shoulder yokes. Sitting on spare wooden benches, the women face the men, separated by a center aisle. They and more than a dozen guests have gathered this Sunday morning in the unadorned chapel inside the 1883 Dwelling House at the Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village in rural southern Maine. One of the four reads from Luke 24:13-35, in which Jesus' disciples do not recognize him after the resurrection. Several of the guests then offer testimony, drawing parallels to their own lives, or simply reflect on the idea that God is not always clearly perceived. After each speaker, the two men and two women reply, in unison, by singing a Shaker song a cappella.

    Enfield Shaker Museum Makes You Kindly Welcome
    Enfield Shaker Museum has been offered a $35,000 Matching Grant to fund new electrical wiring and life safety systems in the Great Stone Dwelling. The Museum must raise $35,000 by July 31, 2008 to receive a $35,000 matching gift from the Butler Foundation. The total $70,000 raised will fund these necessary code requirements. Built in 1841, the Great Stone Dwelling is the Museum’s most important artifact. The granite building was designed by Ammi Burnham Young – later the architect for the U.S. Treasury. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Great Stone Dwelling was intended to house nearly 100 Shaker Brethren and Sisters. It was where they dined, slept and worshipped. It incorporates the Shaker ideals of order and simplicity and represented the Enfield Shakers’ hope for the future.

    Comment on film addthis_pub = 'folkstreams'; We invite you to take our short survey The Shakers are America's oldest and most successful experiment in communal living. A century ago, nearly 6,000 Shaker brothers and sisters lived together in nineteen communities scattered from Maine to Kentucky. This film traces the growth, decline, and continuing survival of this remarkable and influential religious sect through the memories and rich song traditions of Shakers themselves. It includes performances by the late Eldress Marguerite Frost of Canterbury, New Hampshire, and the late Sister R. Mildred Barker, a leading singer and spiritual leader of the Shaker community still active at Sabbathday Lake, Maine when the film was made. For an account of how the film was made and for contextual materials on the song tradition and gift painting tradition, we highly recommend the essays recently posted by Shaker scholar Daniel Patterson. This work was part of a 2006 grant from the Folk Arts division of the National Endowment for the Arts.

    Shakers and Shakerism
    A Guide to the Collections
    of The New York Public Library
    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.
