  Burne, Nicol, [note] a religious apostate, who was Professor of Philosophy in St. Leonard's College, St. Andrew's, during the latter part of the sixteenth century, wrote, in his native tongue, a furious rhyming tirade against the Reformers. It is entitled, “The Disputation concerning the controvertit heades of religion, halden in the realme of Scotland, the zeir of God ane thousand fyve hundreth four scoir yeiris, betwix the praetendit ministers of the deformed Kirk of Scotland, and Nicol Burne, Professor of Philosophie in S. Leonardis College, in the city of Sanctandrois, broght up from his tendere age in the perversit sect of the Calvinists, and now be the special grace of God ane member of the Holie Catholic Kirk.” The work bears to have been “Imprinted at Parise, the first day of October, 1581.” It is dedicated to King James the Sixth. Calvin, [note] Knox, [note] Buchanan, and Beza, [note] are among the respectable characters honoured by this recusant's abuse. Of all the leading Reformers, Principal Arbothnot, of Aberdeen, alone is spared:—

But yit, gude Lord, quha anes thy name hes kend
May or they die, find for their saulis remeid:
With thy elect, Arbuthnot I commend,
Althocht the lave to Geneve haist with speid.
