George Fox was an English Dissenter and a founder of the Religious Society of Friends, commonly known as the Quakers.

The son of a weaver from rural England, Fox was apprenticed to a cobbler. Living in a time of great social upheaval, he rebelled against the religious and political consensus by proposing an unusual and uncompromising approach to the Christian faith. Abandoning his trade, he toured Britain as a dissenting preacher, for which he was often persecuted by the authorities, who disapproved of his beliefs.
