Published in Isaac Bullart's 'Académie des Sciences et des Arts'. George Buchanan (1506-1582) was a Scottish historian and humanist scholar. He was part of the monarchomach movement, which consisted of Huguenot theorists who opposed absolute monarchy. Monarchomachs were people who opposed absolutism, believing that sovereignty belonged to the people, but the irony here was that "the people" for monarchomachs in fact only meant to refer to the bourgeoisie and nobility, never the popular masses. Buchanan was a key figure in developing the monarchomach theories in Scotland. Similar to Erasmus, Buchanan had the same ideas about the Catholic church, and was persecuted like all Lutherans in 1539, however he managed to effect his escape, and fled to London and then onto Paris. It was here where faced with further persecution, he accepted an invitation by Andre de Gouveia to take on the post of professor of Latin at the College of Guienne at Bordeaux.
