I-G. D. Henderson
This will be the first of a series of four talks given by speakers of widely differing viewpoints on one of the most important events in Scottish history. It is appropriate that this subject should come up for discussion during the tercentenary year of the signing of the Covenant. The first speaker, Professor Henderson, of Aberdeen University, will speak of the Covenant as it affected the history of the Scottish Church, and will thus represent the point of view of the theological historian.

In Fairyland arrive two knights
Whose doughty deeds in fearsome fights
Have covered both with glory ; Sir Ethais, of handsome mien,
Who loves the ladies, tells the Queen
The same old fairy story!
He wins her heart, but earthly bliss Within her kingdom comes amiss ;
It shakes her throne's foundations!
For jealous hatred takes the stage While pixielated prigs rampage, And fragile fairies rant and rage At indiscreet flirtations!
