    Christian History 102 Nicholas Ferrar Nicholas Ferrar was assumed to be born in 1592. I have found that his most probable birth date was in February of 1593.

  • Self Maintained Communicators
    1,136 words
    Political scientists and even psychoanalytic theorists have come to the conclusion that humans are more or less insecure and defensive people according to Harold Barrett's, "Maintaining the Self in Communication".
