Event description

Description

“The Articles of Perth of 1618” were a major step in James VI’s project of trying to conform the Church of Scotland to Anglicanism, and the resistance to them culminated in the signing of the national covenant of 1638.

The conference venue is St John’s Parish Church in Perth, which is where the General assembly was held in August 1618 when it adopted the notorious articles.
