Patrick Lindsay

Biography of Patrick Lindsay

Patrick Lindsay (1566-1644) was Archbishop of Glasgow and Chancellor of the University, 1633 to 1638.

A graduate of the University of St Andrews, Lindsay was a member of the Privy Council and became Bishop of Ross before his translation to the Glasgow See. He was caught up in the political upheaval of the 1630s, and the Presbytery of Glasgow deprived him of his office and excommunicated him in 1638, ostensibly for attempting to gain acceptance for the new Scottish prayer book. He fled to England to escape persecution and died in poverty in York.
