How did a very hard-line 'Protester' department of Presbyterianism (the final off-shoot of the Convenanting flow) develop into the tested Church in Scotland? and the way did it turn up that Scotland suffered a type of 'cultural revolution' after the Williamite revolution, nipping within the bud the proto-Enlightenment? This publication studies the political occasions that resulted in the abolition of episcopacy in 1689 and with it the concerted assault at the parish clergy. It explores for the 1st time the heritage and affects that ended in the brutal 'rabbling of the curates' in south-west Scotland. It explores the frame of mind of the infamous Covenanting tract Naphtali (1667), and of its writer Sir James Stewart of Goodtrees, who was once the writer of the Act setting up hard-line Presbyterianism in 1690, and have become Lord suggest of Scotland in 1692. The purges of the schools after the 1690 Act ended in a hardening of attitudes, and the on-going purging of the parishes led eventually to the emptying of two-thirds of the entire parishes of Scotland. The e-book indicates how those occasions contributed to the suggestion of 'King William's sick years'.
