“…a first step in obtaining liberty by law to enjoy our religious meetings for the worship of God peaceably, without molestation or disturbance by informers or other persons, yet many of our friends remained prisoners, and under prosecution by priests and magistrates, for non-payment of tithes, and kept them detained in prison, chiefly on contempts, as their term is for not swearing upon oath to the priests’ bills and complaints.”

– George Whitehead, on treatment of Quakers.

 

This work by George Whitehead is an account of suffering and imprisoned Quakers who were persecuted for their faith and way of life. “A Brief Account” was written to assist in Whitehead’s defense of the right to practice the Quaker religion, but its most important aspect is its detailed examination of Quaker life. Whitehead’s advocating of religious freedom had a direct impact on the passing of the Act of Uniformity and other laws.
