Ecclesiastical Records : Selections from the Minutes of the Presbyteries of St. Andrews and Cupar, 1641-1698 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Ecclesiastical Records: Selections From the Minutes of the Presbyteries of St. Andrews and Cupar, 1641-1698 It may be remarked, that many of the old Church Registers have been either lost or destroyed and those that still remain have been too long allowed to lie in obscurity, subject to almost certain destruction from the careless manner in which they are preserved, being in many instances unbound, stained with damp, torn, or otherwise materially injured.l It is hoped, therefore, that the present volume may not only serve as an epi tome of the Registers of these two Presbyteries, during a momentous period of Church history, but may also direct the attention of individuals to the general nature and importance of our ecclesiastical records, and lead them to a careful examination of their contents, and to contribute to their preservation.
