The first six were principals of the University- afterwards, the offices were practically though not formally separated, and a special Chair of Divinity alone was created. The author has thought fit to deal with the six Divinity Principals (as he ventures to style them) in a volume by themselves. Later he hopes to complete his task by recording the careers of their successors, several of whom, like David Dickson, Robert Baillie, Gilbert Burnet, James Wodrow, John Simson, along with Leechman, Macgill, John Caird and others, were men of distinct eminence in ecclesiastical and theological circles.The work is therefore by no means a history of the University. That has been written with much industry and accuracy by the late James Coutts.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
