Introduction


Presented in reverse chronology, this history stretches from the present back to the Fellowship's 1970 founding, and beyond.
(See "Blog Archive" in the sidebar below.) It draws from many sources, including The Fellowship of Friends - Living Presence Discussion, the Internet Archive, the former Fellowship of Friends wiki project, cult education and awareness sites, news archives, and from the editor's own 13-year experience in the Fellowship.

The portrait that emerges stands in stark contrast to sanitized versions presented on the Fellowship's array of
alluring websites, and on derivative sites created by Burton's now-estranged
disciple, Asaf Braverman.

A guided tour of Renaissance Vineyard

[ed. - Journalist Alice Feiring accompanies Renaissance winemaker Gideon Beinstock on a tour of The Fellowship of Friends' Renaissance Vineyard. Feiring recorded the tour on her flip-phone. During the tour, Beinstock refers to several private enterprises (Clos Saron, Grant-Eddie, Bubalus Bubalis Inc.) also using the property, though he fails to mention Apollo Olive Oil's orchards, which are also on the mountain's "crown" near the end of the tour.

Also worth reading is the Wicker Parker blog review, "A Visit to Renaissance" from October 2008.]
