Agreement Covenanters

Another military intervention by the Covenant began in 1643. The leaders of the English Parliament, which was the worst during the English Civil War, asked the Scots for help, which was promised on the condition that the Scottish system of Church government be adopted in England. After an in-depth debate, a document entitled “Festliga und Bund” was drawn up. It was indeed a treaty between England and Scotland, which called for the preservation of the Reformed religion in Scotland and the reform of religion in England and Ireland “according to the Word of God and the example of the best reformed churches” and the eradication of the papacy and the pre-Lads. It did not explicitly mention presbytery and contained some ambiguous formulations that opened the door to independence. It was signed by many in both kingdoms and also in Ireland and approved by the English parliament, with some slight modifications to the Westminster Assembly of the Divines. This agreement meant that the Covenanters sent another army to the south in England to fight on the parliamentary side of the First English Civil War. The Scottish armies in England played an important role in the victory of the English parliament over the king. Another rebellion broke out in 1679, after the unexpected success of a group of opponents of the alliance, armed with pitch and other pitch forks, against government forces led by John Graham of Claverhouse in the Battle of Drumclog. For a time, the authorities saw the risk of losing control of south-west Scotland, as more and more people joined the rebel camp of Bothwell, near Glasgow; but only a few weeks after Drumclog, the rebels were defeated in the Battle of Bothwell Brig.

In the weeks leading up to the battle, the Covenanters spent more time arguing with each other than preparing for the inevitable counterattack that contributed greatly to their downfall. Of the 1,200 rebels captured in Edinburgh, about 400 were imprisoned during the winter months in an area of Greyfriars Kirkyard. [2] COVENANT, remedy.
