Scotland, England, and the Reformation 1534-61


Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by discussing that the accession of Elizabeth some months ago had brought joy to the godly with the vision of the overthrow of popery in England; and those who favoured the cause of reform in Scotland could not fail to be heartened by the idea that the tide was turning against the Catholic advance which had threatened to overtake Britain. It also talks of the new queen's secretive negotiations between English border officials and prominent Scottish politicians. It explains that the queen's advisers recognised the incompatibility of the Congregation's religious extremism with Elizabeth's conservative ecclesiastical tastes, thus leading the parliament to return the country to the Protestant religion. It also talks about the differing interpretations of the amity. It discusses several cross-border contacts and the return of Mary Queen of Scots.
