After several years in Geneva, Switzerland, John Knox returns from exile to Scotland. He will then become the leader of the emerging Scottish Reformation. It's as much a political as a religious revolution, because with the aid of the Scottish nobility, regent Mary of Guise is ousted from power.

John Knox writes a new confession of faith for Christians in Scotland, Scots Confession, and draws up an organizational plan for the Scottish Church. The Parliament will pass a number of laws supporting the Reformation: celebrating Mass is banned, the authority of the pope is eliminated, and all practices that don't conform to the new Reformed faith are condemned.
