With the exception of John Knox, no one did more to shape the Scottish Reformation than Andrew Melville. Remembered chiefly as a firebrand defender of radical Presbyterianism and reformer of the Scottish university system, his broader contributions to the cultural development of early modern Scotland have largely been marginalised in subsequent historiography. Yet, as this collection shows, Melvillle was much more than simply a parochial reformer - rather he was an influential member of a pan-European humanist network.
