Excerpt from The Life of John Knox: Containing Illustrations of the History of the Reformation in Scotland
Another obscure passage in his Life, related to his offer of promotion in the English Church. Knox him. Self states that he had refused a Bishopric; and DE m'crie thinks it probable that Newcastle, which was then proposed to be erected by dividing the extensive diocese of Durham into two, was the'see destined for our Reformer: this is now found to be an error, and it is ascertained that the Bishopric of Rochester was that intended for Knox, could he have been prevailed upon to accept it. For these important facts in the Life of our Reformer, we are indebted to the recent investiga tions of a distinguished living historian, Mr. Patrick fraser tytler, in the State Paper Office.
