Annals of the Disruption, Vol. 2: Consisting Chiefly of Extracts from the Autograph Narratives of Ministers Who Left the Scottish Establishment in 1843 (Classic Reprint) by Thomas Brown (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from Annals of the Disruption, Vol. 2: Consisting Chiefly of Extracts From the Autograph Narratives of Ministers Who Left the Scottish Establishment in 1843 It has t been found possible to complete these Annals within the limits formerly proposed, partly owing to the increase of materials, and partly because of the wish expressed in various quarters for a somewhat fuller treatment of the subject. There yet remain various points to be considered: the refusal of sites, as brought before Parliament - the case of the quoad sacra churches - the support and extension of Missions - and other matters connected with the outward and spiritual progress of the Church. It has been found necessary, also, to defer the brief biographical tices of deceased ministers; but in the Appendix there will be found a list of all who left the Establishment in 1843, showing the names of those who still survive, and of those who have been removed by death. Among the incidents recorded, there are cases in which authority is quoted, and name of person or place is given. These are withheld for obvious reasons; - it should, however, be understood that the circumstances are kwn, and the statements are derived from reliable sources of information. The object of this work, and the authority under which it appears, have been fully stated in the preface to the First Part, formerly issued. The Committee would earnestly repeat their appeal for aid in collecting additional records and memorials referring to the history of Disruption times.
