Klappentext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Buchanan was a Scottish historian and humanist scholar. He was part of the Monarchomach movement. His father, a younger son of an old family, owned the farm of Moss, in the parish of Killearn, Stirling, but he died young, leaving his widow and children in poverty. George's mother, Agnes Heriot, was of the family of the Heriots of Trabroun, East Lothian, of which George Heriot, founder of Heriot's Hospital, was also a member. Buchanan is said to have attended Killearn school, but not much is known of his early education. In 1520 he was sent by his uncle, James Heriot, to the University of Paris, where he first came in contact with the two great influences of the age, the Renaissance and the Reformation. There, according to him, he devoted himself to the writing of verses "partly by liking, partly by compulsion." In 1522 his uncle died, and Buchanan was unable to stay in Paris; he returned to Scotland
