What kind of a conversation is the act of translation?
Have you ever used the Bible as a dictionary?
What remains difficult and/or resistant to translation?
Who reads these translations? Why not more modern Quaker texts?
Not a missionary intervention, but a recovery of missing pieces in a tradition.
Other digital humanities opportunities to serve Spanish speaking Quakers.

Professor Sánchez-Eppler and Susan Furry started translating  together more than 20 years ago, and have developed a sustainable practice of translation focused on early Quaker texts. They publish their work in www.raicescuaqueras.org. Spanish speaking Friends from all branches of Quakerism in Latin America, United States and Europe read and print as moved.
