In the 17th and 18th centuries each quarterly meeting functioned as an intermediary between the local meetings and the Yearly Meeting, served as an appellate body for disciplinary matters, and considered questions too large for one meeting to resolve. A quarterly meeting also had the authority to establish or discontinue a monthly, preparative, or particular meeting for worship. Index at front.
