Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of ancient author names and terms that are mentioned in the book Sixteenth-Century Scotland: Essays in Honour of Michael Lynch. One common theme of the book is that the Protestants often appear to be contending against each other. The main struggle between different groups of Protestants was also to some extent about Erastianism: the battle between episcopalians, often supported by the crown, and presbyterians, often hostile to the crown. Two of the leading antagonists here were Archbishop Patrick Adamson and the presbyterian leader Andrew Melville; their relationship is discussed by Alan R. Mac Donald.

Keywords: Andrew Melville; Michael Lynch; Protestants
