A Literary Relic of Scottish Lollardy
By Thomas. M. Lindsay from his article in the Scottish Historical Review (1904)

The Scottish Text Society have done a great service to many departments of historical inquiry by the publication of Murdoch Nisbet’s New Testament in Scots, the second volume being part of last year’s issue.

It is not a simple transcript of Purvey’s edition of Wycliffe’s New Testament; it is a translation of that book into the Scots language. It is the only version which exists of the New Testament in the tongue of the northern portion of Great Britain. It is more. It is the only literary relic we possess of the Scottish Lollards.
