Abstract:

" ... The history of the Scottish Covenanters, this original work contains vivid descriptions of events and biographical sketches of the people central to this Presbyterian movement during the 17th century. This important history of religious persecution is divided into 4 parts. Part One provides an historical background which looks at some of the issues leading to the National Covenant, and the subsequent bloody persecution of King Charles II ... Part Two looks at the pivotal persons who played key roles during this time of brutal punishments and heroic displays of faith. The main people discussed include persecutor Archbishop Sharp of Andrews and the soldier Marquis of Montrose. The Covenanter portraits described include the Marquis of Argyll, Archibald Johnston and Alexander Henderson, and many ministers of the Kirk ... Part Three describes the early Scots and Presbyterians settlers of the Ulster Plantation, and the continued persecution that drove them to immigrate to the American Colonies. The Rebellion of 1641, Cromwell, the siege of Londonderry, and the Boyne are topics found in Part Three. Part Four is an Epilogue discussing the Solway Martyrs. This work boasts 14 appendices. These include a list of hundreds of settlers and ministers in Ulster and over 1000 Covenanter martyrs who were executed, imprisoned and banished ..." Back of Cover.
