Barker with a capital "B" ???[edit]

I'm looking for the meaning of the word Barker (with a capital "B") as used in Neal Stephenson's Quicksilver. It appears to be some kind of religious fanatic in the 18th century (the era in which the novel is set). Wikipedia has a disambiguation page for "Barker" but does not include this definition. --Tzf 07:36, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
