This is a wholly misleading judgement on Hamilton, who in fact abandoned his predecessor's confrontational policy towards evangelical heresy and adopted a reform programme which embraced significant parts of the evangelical agenda. See Alec Ryrie, 'Reform without frontiers in the last years of Catholic Scotland' in English Historical Review vol. 119 (2004), 27-56.

How oft ye do this, do it in my remembraunce.

MarginaliaThe Archb. of S. Andrewes speaketh.Then saide the B. of S. Andrewes, and the Officiall of Lowthaine, with the Deane of Glasgue, and many other Prelates: we know this well enough. MarginaliaThe Earle of Hūtly speaketh.The earle of Hūtly said: thou aunswerest not to that which is laide to thee: say either nay or yea thereto.

Why (quoth the Earle of Huntley) hast thou not a Iudge good inough? and crowest thou that we know not God and his word? Aunswere to that is spoken to thee: and then they made the accuser speake the same thing ouer againe.

I Corinthians 11:27, 29.

when he sayeth: Marginalia1. Cor. 11.Whosoeuer eateth this bread, and drinketh of thys cup vnwoorthely, receaueth to hymselfe damnation.

MarginaliaAdam Wallace aunswereth by his Creede.He answered: I wot not what that word consecration meaneth.

MarginaliaChrists naturall body cannot be in two places at once.And that this body is a naturall body with handes & feete and cannot be in two places at once, he sheweth well hym selfe: For the whiche euerlasting thankes be to hym that maketh this matter cleare.

John 6:53, 60-63.

: Except ye eate my fleshe and drinke my bloud, ye shall not haue life in you: they murmuring therat, he reproued them for their grosse & fleshly taking of his wordes, and sayd: MarginaliaIohn. 6.What will ye thinke when ye se the sonne of man ascend to the place that he came frō?
