9781331278344: Alexander Henderson: The Covenanter (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Alexander Henderson: The Covenanter

The period which followed the Union of the Crowns of Scotland and England contains the opening of that contest between Presbytery and Episcopacy, which occupies so much of our history, and some of its most interesting episodes took place between 1618-1646, the years which comprise the active public life of him who is the subject of the following pages. For this reason the life and career of Alexander Henderson must always possess the greatest interest to any student of Scottish history.

The most characteristic point in this period, as in others, is the desire of the Scottish people to keep their Church independent of all secular control. The policy, begun by James VI. after his accession to the English throne, and continued by his son, not only subverted this but also offended the Scottish sentiments of Patriotism and of Freedom. As it proceeded, the issue became one not only for ecclesiastical, but also for national independence, for the right of the people as well as of the Church against the will of the Sovereign. The five Articles of Perth, for example, are open to condemnation, much less for what they contain than on account of the authority by which they were introduced, and the methods by which that authority was sought to be enforced.
