Interesting article I
picked up from the Scottish Historical Review...
THE writings of William
Barclay possess qualities which warrant an attempt to draw them from the
dust heap of political controversy. Though he left Scotland in early
manhood and, so far as is known, never saw it again, he always retained
a loyal enthusiasm for his native country, and in his De Regno,
published eight years before his death, he lightens the long course of a
polemical treatise with a few whimsical memories of his boyhood.
Further, his frequent references to Scottish history and tradition give
to his work a distinctively national note, though its proper place is to
be found in the main stream of European controversy.
