[John Knox's Home. Edinburgh.] 71.[John Knox's house is an interesting old house projecting into the High Street of Edinburgh. Knox's 'manse' is known to have been further up the street, but it is believed that he lived here for some time, towards the end of his life. Over part of the front of the ground floor is an inscription "Lufe God abufe al, and thi nychtbour as thi-self." The house, which stands near the old lower gate of the City, was purchased by the Free Church. The interior is well preserved and many relics of Knox are stored there. Perhaps the most interesting is the study where the great reformer is traditionally believed to have worked until a fortnight before his death.]

Educated at the University of St Andrews and influenced by reformers such as George Wishart, he joined the movement to reform the Scottish church.
