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 - his poetry and prose - 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.
