Professor Jane Dawson (University of Edinburgh):  The Radicalization of John Knox

Radicalization within a religious context excites much contemporary comment and it is sometimes forgotten this is not a new phenomenon. The experience of John Knox [1514/-15-1572] offers a particularly clear example of what provoked the process of radicalization, what were its products and its tangled consequences.

Professor Jane Dawson will be drawing upon some of the newly-discovered material in her forthcoming biography of Knox to discuss how his life was changed by what he called ‘Satan’s bloody claws’.
