Msg event.pngCardinal Beaton

As a trusted advisor of James V, Cardinal David Beaton managed to make sure that Scotland did not follow in England's footsteps and become Protestant. Instead he worked to strengthen the bond to Catholic France and even managed to arrange two marriages with French noblewomen which both brought considerable dowries in gold to the Scottish courts treasury.

Msg event.pngGeorge Bruce of Carnock


The Scottish merchant, engineer and innovator in coal mining techniques, Sir George Bruce, introduced undersea mining into the Upper Hirst seam. It used a new drainage technology that attracted a visit from King James VI in 1617. The king accepted Bruce's invitation to visit one of his mines which tunneled down beneath the sea bed. After venturing into a tunnel which went far out into the Firth of Forth, the king found himself at a shaft point where the coal was loaded onto the ships. Water surrounded the top of the shaft and king James, alarmed with this, accused Sir George of an assassination attempt and of treason. George Bruce then pointed out the rowing boat and explained that they could either use the boat or return by the tunnel from whence they came. The king relaxed and took the option of the boat journey.

Msg event.pngJohn Knox and the Religious Strife

John Knox became something of a spokesman for Protestantism in Scotland in the 1540s. Initially he was accompanying George Wishart on his preaching tours, but Wishart was captured and handed over to Cardinal David Beaton in St Andrews. There he was tried and burned on the stakes in 1546 for spreading Protestant heresy. Three months later Cardinal Beaton was murdered in revenge by Protestants. When John Knox arrived in St Andrews about a year later he was persuaded by scholars at the university to preach in the town. In June 1547, French assistance to fight the Protestants arrived and the castle of St Andrews which capitulated on terms that were later not kept. Knox and others were carried off to slavery in the French galleys but due to English intervention Knox was released 19 months later. He could however not return to Scotland and continue his preaching but had to stay under the protection of the English and had a large influence on the forming of the English Puritanism. He stayed in England until the Catholic Mary Tudor ascended the throne, at which time he thought it wise to flee to the continent. There he formulated his view that God-fearing magistrates and nobility have both the right and the duty to resist, if necessary by force, a ruler who threatens the safety of true religion. In 1559 he again was able to return to Scotland and was astounded by the progress made by the Reformed cause and by the eager reception given to him by all classes in the community.

Msg event.pngThe Scottish Witchcraft Act

The Scottish Witchcraft Act of 1563 made the practice of witchcraft and consulting with witches capital offenses. James VI played a major part as 'victim' and investigator in the North Berwick witch trials that began in 1589 and were the first major series of trials under the new act. The king published a defense of witch-hunting in the 'Daemonologie' in 1597 but later became increasingly skeptical and took steps to limit prosecutions. Scotland tried an estimate of 6,000 people for witchcraft, where seventy-five per cent of the accused were women and over 1,500 executed.

Msg event.pngThe Breaking of the Douglases

In 1449 the king James II was old enough to marry and reclaim control of his kingdom. He immediately seized the Livingston estates, but was a bit more lenient against the Douglasses. In a quarrel in 1452 however he himself stabbed William, 8th Earl of Douglas, to death. Historically this was the end of the power of the Douglas family and 3 years later all their land was confiscated and their castles demolished.

Msg event.pngThe First Covenant

In 1557, a powerful group of nobles, called the Lords of the Congregation, drew up a Protestant proclamation which was later called the First Covenant, calling for the expulsion of the Catholic Church from Scotland. The motives however were probably much more to be able to confiscate the vast riches of the Catholic Church in Scotland than purely true faith.
