Publisher's Summary

In October 1656 a man called James Nayler, one of the prominent early Quakers, rode into Bristol, dressed in white and accompanied by women followers. It was a provocative mock-up of Jesus' entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday.
The government of the country then ground to a halt for nearly two months as Oliver Cromwell and Parliament tried to decide what to do with him. This entertaining and informative programme explores what happened next.
