Thank Calvin for great Scots minds | Tom Devine - Times Online

Nice article by Tom Devine:

"We only hear the downside of the Reformation. Its rigid disciplines led to a cultural flowering."

"This summer, 450 years ago, Scotland was in the grip of a revolution. With riots in Perth, and the sacking of churches in St Andrews and Dundee, the Reformation, led by John Knox, had begun to change the face of the nation."
