Look into the eyes of John Knox's statue and think of the Reformation struggles of the 16th century. Knox, the great reformer and founder of austere Scottish Presbyterianism, first preached here in 1559. Thanks partly to Knox, it was Scottish minds that led the way in math, science, engineering and medicine. Rick: Excuse me, sir, do you know where John Knox is buried? Man: Yes…By the way, John Knox, Scotland's great reformer, is buried just out back — with appropriate austerity.
