FameRank: 6

"John Knox" was a Scottish people/Scottish clergyman and writer who was a leader of the Protestant Reformation and is considered the founder of the Presbyterianism/Presbyterian denomination in Scotland. He is believed to have been educated at the University of St Andrews and worked as a notary-priest. Influenced by early church reformers such as George Wishart, he joined the movement to reform the Roman Catholic Church in Scotland/Scottish church. He was caught up in the ecclesiastical and political events that involved the murder of David Cardinal Beaton/Cardinal Beaton in 1546 and the intervention of the regent of Scotland Mary of Guise. He was taken prisoner by French forces the following year and exiled to England on his release in 1549.
