This Day in History: 1655-12-18

1655: The Whitehall Conference, convened by revolutionary (and extremist Puritan) leader Oliver Cromwell for the purpose of giving legal color to the re-admission of Jews to England, ends with the determination that there “is no law” preventing them from entering the country. Jews had been expelled from England by the royal Edict of Expulsion of 1290 of King Edward I (also known as Edward Longshanks) .
