Protesters

The name given to that section of the Scottish Covenanters* which regarded as criminal any dealings with Charles II* (who had been crowned on the first day of 1651 in Scotland) and which protested against the reinstatement of those formerly hostile to the Covenant. They opposed the majority of the clergy (see Resolutioners), accusing the latter of putting loyalty to the king above the rights of Christ in His church.
