John Perrot
(833 words)


John Perrot was an Irish Quaker from Waterford who became a leading figure in the sect in its early years. However, by the time of his death, he had lost the support of most of his co-religionists and was condemned as a schismatic. His brief prominence in the movement was, in part, a consequence of his travels in the Mediterranean and his attempt to declare the Quaker message to its inhabitants, including Muslims in the Ottoman Empire.
