Faith & Social Justice: In the spirit of Richard Overton and the 17th C. Levellers

This Day in Church History

25 August 1560, led by John Knox, the Reformed Church of Scotland is established along Calvinistic Protestant lines.  The Scottish Parliament accepts the very Calvinist Scots Confession, forbids the mass, and declares that the pope has no jurisdiction in Scotland.  Like all other Constantinian state church systems, the Church of Scotland is intolerant of all dissenters, not only Catholic, but Protestant, Anabaptist, or Jewish as well.
