The Earl of Rothes's Relation of Proceedings Concerning the Affars of the Kirk of Scotland is a narration of some details of the religious revolution in Scotland in the late 1630s written by one of the chief revolutionaries. That he was also a peer and one of the wealthiest men in the Kingdom did not keep Rothes from taking a position in direct opposition to his sovereign: in fact, quite the opposite. This text is important for recording conferences and interviews the author experienced first-hand, but also for documenting the reasoning by which a feudal view of Scots law merged with Calvinism.
