The 444th Anniversary of The Death of John Knox

There’s a fantastic overview of Knox here- by the Germans!  I guess the Scots can’t be bothered with Knox these days (and anyway, he’d hate the Church of Scotland with a passionate fire only Knox himself could muster).

Als wuchtige Steinfigur ist John Knox auf dem internationalen Reformationsdenkmal in Genf verewigt. Auch in seiner Heimatstadt Edinburgh erinnert eine Statue in der St. Giles’ Cathedral an den Schotten. Genf und Edinburgh sind zwei Stationen im Leben des streitbaren und unbeugsamen Theologen, der sich als wichtiger Wegbereiter der Reformation in Schottland einen Namen gemacht hat.

Read the whole brief but spectacular piece.

One Response to The 444th Anniversary of The Death of John Knox

  1. Jim Gordon says:

    Jane Dawson’s definitive biography of Knox was written in Scotland, published 2015, by a Scottish Church historian based in Edinburgh, and written within a fitba penalty kick of the statue of John Knox in the New College quad.
