Book Description

Terence Tobin edits and annotates this bitingly satirical play written in 1 692 and attributed to Dr. Archibald Pitcairne. Significant as the only known full-length drama written in Scotland between the Reformation and the eighteenth century, it is a vigorous attack on religious hypocrisy.

About the Author(s):

An eminent physician of the seventeenth century, Archibald Pitcairne was born at Edinburgh on the 25th December, 1652. Dr Pitcairne's chief work was published in 1718, under the title of "Elementa Medicinae Physico-Mathematica," consisting of his lectures at Leiden.
