Editor's Notes

  1. The Disruption – On 18 May 1843, over a third of the ministers, and perhaps half the lay membership left the established Church of Scotland in protest against what they perceived as state efforts to undermine the Church's spiritual independence and integrity. They went on to form the new Free Church of Scotland, and to build New College as the training college for Free Church ministers.
