Who are the Scots?

Jenny Geddes (c.1600 - 1660) An Edinburgh stall-holder, famous for a solitary act of defiance. She threw a stool at the Bishop in St. Giles in protest at the introduction of the much resented English prayer book, which was regarded as Roman Catholic by Scottish Presbyterians. Her words were 'Thou false thief; dost thou say Mass at ma lug?'
