This chapter examines the particular interface of mystical spirituality with mainline Protestantism and pacifism, using sources from the 1920s through the 1950s. It presents a historical text that was central to mainline Protestant mystical practice; four spiritual teachers whose thought and practice were well known; and testimony from ordinary practitioners of Protestant pacifist mysticism. The discussion shows how mystical spirituality functioned in part as a religious response to modernity, and how liberal Quakerism offered the primary institutional space for it.

Keywords:   religious pacifism, Protestant pacifism, pacificist mysticism, Protestantism, mystical spirituality, modernity, liberal Quakerism
