Subject: [Scotch-Irish] New On Line Resource Discovered for Covenantors
Date: Fri, 22 Dec 2000 10:26:44 -0800
My sister has found this website which sells Covenantor items: http://www.psalms4u.com/
It carries musical CDs (Those old psalms are fantastic. If you ever
envied the Catholics gregorian chant, you'll like these).
It has history too, though apparently much is of the Scottish
(not Irish). NOTE: The Covenantors in Ireland were not persecuted
as the Covenantors in Scotland were. Sorry, very few martyrs....
This hasn't stopped some families from inventing descent from
various Scottish martyrs -- like my own. Though that isn't
to say some Irish families were not. However the Killing Fields --
you gotta take the plane to Scotland for them, leaving at gate 5
(unless you fly America West, in which case, you are spending the
night in Phoenix).
Including such items as
TRANSPLANTED TO AMERICA: A Popular History of the American Covenanters to 1871 Dr. David M. Carson
60 pp., spiralbound. (ch140), $8.
THEY RECEIVED THE CROWN OF MARTYRDOM Dr. Robert L. LaMay
20 sketches of Covenanter martyrs. 48 pp., spiralbound (ch165), $7.
THE SCOTS WORTHIES John Howie
Back in print, mini-biographies of Christian heroes in Scotland from the 1520s to the killing times of the 1680s. (Banner of Truth), 672 pp., clothbound. (ch120), $35.
NO KING BUT CHRIST: The Story of Donald Cargill Maurice Grant
Set in Scotland at a time when preaching without license from the Crown was an offense punishable by imprisonment, banishment, and even death, this book tells the story one of the most noted and loved preachers of the day. Cargill chose to face privation, danger, and ultimately execution rather than surrender the rights of Christ alone to be Head of the Church. (EP), 272 pp., paperback (ch155), $12.
I don't own any of these though I do own one chilling martyrology.
Alas, it is full of people named Thompson, Wilson, etc -- these people
were too poor to have distinctive surnames, apparently!!
Merry Christmas to everyone.
