Scottish Puritanism, 1590-1638

Though Puritanism was a piety intended very much for the laity, the clergy remained central to the practice and thinking of the movement. Scottish Presbyterians, in particular, formed a tightly knit community that studied together, worked together, prayed together, married into godly families including each others’, and engaged in a monumental struggle against the Episcopal and liturgical agendas of the early Stewart monarchs. For some of these men, it was the Five Articles of Perth (1618) that galvanized their religious commitment to Presbyterianism, but it remains that most members of the episcopate up to 1638 were, polity apart, Puritans as well.
