"The present edition strives to follow a middle course. Laing's transcript (corrected here and there from the manuscript) has formed the basis of the text, but the spelling has been modernized throughout...One other liberty has been taken with the text. Certain passages which are not the work of Knox (such as Frith's translation of Patrick Hamilton's treatise, or Foxe's account of the condemnation and martyrdom of George Wishart) and certain 'documents' (such as the Confession of Faith and the Book of Discipline) have been lifted from the text and given in appendices. Valuable and interesting as they are, in the text they break the narrative; and it is probably that had Knox been writing his History to-day he would have adopted some such arrangement himself." - Foreword.
