So Knox has had a bad press?
Happens to the best of dour, intolerant, unyielding iconoclasts and
The man was a meterological genius. Blamed the lousy harvest and famine of
1563 on the "idolatory of our wicked queen."
Congenial marital Counselor: Claimed that the marriage of Mary Livingstone
to John Sempill was hastened for the ususal reasons.
Keen in observations: "She [Mary Stuart] would lie upon Chatelard's
shoulder, and sometimes privily she would steal a kiss of his neck."
Considerate. By all means: The aforesaid Chatelard was a poet who found
his way into Mary's bedchambers a couple of times. Caused a commotion so
great that Moray had him put to death. Knox's words of consolation: just
retribution for dancing.
Our kind of guy!
Opps. Almost forgot. d. 1571.
