'...a condensed, scholarly account of the religious upheaval of the sixteenth century. Where d'Aubigne would be too bulky, this volume will be acceptable, and the condensation is not a mutilation. The chapter on the principles of the Reformation, and the chronological summary at the end, are very valuable features of the book. It has our heartiest commendation.' --Charles H. Spurgeon
About the Author
Thomas Martin Lindsay was ordained in 1872 as Professor of Church History at the Free Church College, Glasgow, where he continued until his death in 1914, since 1902 having been Principal of what had become the United Free College.
Lindsay was born in 1843 in Lesmahagow, Lanarkshire, a son of the manse, and studied at Glasgow and Edinburgh, where he was assistant to Professor A. C. Fraser. Apart from a probationary period assisting Robert Candlish at Free St George s, Edinburgh, he had no experience of pastoral ministry.
His wife was a daughter of Alexander Murray Dunlop, advocate and later MP for Greenock, who drew up the Claim of Right (1842) prior to the Disruption and was legal adviser to the Free Church of Scotland. Lindsay obtained a DD from Glasgow and an LLD from St Andrews (1906).
