Scots Confession

The [[Scots Confession]] was prepared in four days in August 1560 and submitted to the Scottish Parliament which ratified it with very little opposition. The individuals responsible for its preparation were John Winram, subprior of St. Andrews; John Spottiswoode, later superintendent of Lothian; John Willock, later superintendent of Glasgow and the West; John Douglas, rector of St. Andrews; John Row, minister of Perth; and John Knox,* minister of St. Giles's, Edinburgh-the “six Johns.” The dominant figure in the preparation was undoubtedly Knox, who had already been involved in the formulation of a number of confessions on the Continent-in Frankfurt, in Geneva, and perhaps also in France.
