This history of the Church of Scotland includes John Knox’s battle for independence from Rome and his part in the  Reformation; the Covenanters who established an independent General Assembly within Presbyterianism; and the Evangelical revival of the Haldane brothers in Edinburgh, as well as Thomas McCrie and Thomas Chalmers.  The Presbyterian Church of Scotland still sees itself as independent from civil authority, yet for all practical purposes it is the controlling religious body of the country.  This history does not include the later Baptists nor most of the twentieth century.
