Few Pictures from Scotland

Entering Scotland.


St. Andrews.
Grave of Samuel Rutherford.

Church where John Knox preached his first sermon (Holy Trinity)

The sites of the burning of Patrick Hamilton (PH) and George Wishart (GW).

In February 1528, Patrick Hamilton, who was influenced by Martin Luther, was burned alive at the stake in St. Andrews for his Protestant faith. Soon to follow him at the stake was George Wishart, the spiritual mentor of John Knox who wanted to follow Wishart to his trial, but Wishart forbid him to come. John Knox was the man that was able to harvest what these men planted in bringing the Reformation to Scotland.
