They suffered fierce opposition that left them bereft of property and possessions. Hundreds died during these years as the State Records show. They were counted as outlaws, rebels, and fanatics in order to procure our freedom.
The video presents a penetrating look at a movement in 17th-century Scotland that is little known today but whose courage and fortitude are woven into the fabric of the Scottish people. The Covenanters covenanted with God for the good of the people.
This film covers the story of fifty years with a short prelude to help understand the reason why they acted as they did. Their conflict was basically spiritual, but, due to prevailing and constant persecution, they were drawn into deeper conflicts and complexities. They fought long and hard for the crown rights and prerogatives of Christ over His Church with devastating results upon themselves.
