Overview

During one of the most politically and religiously volatile periods in Scottish history, John Knox stood as a pillar of the Protestant faith. As leader of the Scottish Reformation, Knox was one of the most respected and influential men of his time. After converting to Protestantism, likely due to the influence of George Wishart—Knox passionately spoke out against Catholicism, and the divisions his teachings created remained a powerful source of tension centuries later.

In 1546, Knox was taken prisoner by French forces and eventually exiled to England, where he worked his way to the rank of royal chaplain. When Roman Catholicism re-emerged with the transition in royalty, Knox moved to Geneva, where he met John Calvin. Calvin influenced Knox’s theology and his understanding of church leadership structures. When Knox returned to Scotland, he led the movement that changed the religious landscape of the country forever: the Scottish Reformation. With five other leaders of the Reformation, Knox wrote the Scottish Confession of Faith and established the Reformed Presbyterian church known as the Church of Scotland, or the Kirk.
