Robert Baillie, a Scottish Presbyterian minister and theological scholar, was a leader of the seventeenth-century movement that rejected the Church of England’s Book of Common Prayer. He actively participated in the Glasgow Assembly of 1638 during which the Church of Scotland broke away from English episcopacy and attended the 1643 Westminster Assembly of Divines.
Baillie faithfully recorded public events and his participation in both his journals and correspondence. The Letters and Journals of Robert Baillie is a complete collection of his journals and correspondence from January 1637 to May 1662. His letters discuss the re-establishment of the Presbytery in Scotland, the Civil Wars, the trial of the Earl of Strafford, the proceedings of the 1643 Westminster Assembly of Divines, and the death warrant for Charles I. His letters and journals are a major source for seventeenth-century church history.
