More Details

A late pamphlet by English Dissenter and founder of the Religious Society of Friends, George Fox (1624 - 1691). Here, Fox argues for a scriptural basis to religious toleration amongst Christians. After the Restoration of Charles II in 1660, religious persecution of religious dissenters continued, and Fox was arrested as late as 1683. He continued to advocate for toleration, however, and this pamphlet anticipates the Toleration Act of 1689 by four years. References: ESTC R35518; Wing F1938.
