1905. In this brief life of Knox, Mr. Lang tried, as much as he could, to get behind tradition, which has so deeply affected even modern histories of the Scottish Reformation, and even recent biographies of the Reformer. Opinion about Knox and the religious revolution in which he took so great a part, has passed through several variations in the last century. Several passages from Knox's works are cited. Illustrated. Partial Contents: Ancestry, birth, education, environment; St. Andrews Castle; Knox in England; Exile; Puritan Troubles at Frankfort; Knox in Scotland; Writings from Abroad; Knox on the Anabaptists; Scottish Revolution; Intrigues; Knox in the War of the Congregation; Knox and Queen Mary; Last Years of Knox.
