The Archbishops of St. Andrews
By John Herkless, Professor of Ecclesiastical History in the University of St. Andrews and Robert Kerr Hanny, Lecturer in Ancient History in the University of St. Andrews in 4 volumes (1907)

The history of the Archbishops of St Andrews extends over a century, from the elevation of Patrick Graham to the execution of John Hamilton. This volume covers a period for which our authorities are often meagre and unsatisfactory, and yet their evidence, though frequently discrediting the literary tradition, must be preferred. An adequate chapter on Scotland and its Church in the last generations before the Reformation could only be founded on a number of special investigations which have not yet been completed. One of these investigations must be the history of the archbishops.

In the construction of the chronological framework it has been found convenient to translate important dates into the new style, and in the text they are given in this form.
