Patrick Hamilton, whose life and thought are the subject of this article, was the first Lutheran and the first martyr of the Scottish Reformation. He initiated the reform and others who shared his Lutheran convictions followed him in laying the foundations for Scottish Protestantism. His writings were carried to England, and he thereby became a significant influence in the Reformation there as well as in his homeland. Since the Lutheran phase of the Reformation in Scotland has been overshadowed by the work of Knox and other Calvinists, this article attempts to portray the vital contributions of Scotland's earliest Protestant.
