Someset’s Article on Some Post-Revolution Scottish Covenanters #History #Scotland

This excellent article by Douglas Somerset cuts through the often confusing tangle of Post-Revolution fragments of the Society people from 1690 to beyond the Union. It makes particular mention of The Sweet Singers/Gibbites, The Russellites (after James Russell), the Cotmuir Folk, Patrick Grant, John Hepburn’s followers and John MacMillan and his followers, the McMillanites, (known earlier as the Hamiltonians after Robert Hamilton.) It is a great piece of work.
