Informatory Vindication (1687), a statement of principles issued by the Society People (see United Societies and Covenanters) during James VII's reign. Prepared mainly by James Renwick, latterly in consultation with Alexander Shields, it was published in Utrecht.
Its full title reflects something of the contents:
"An Informatory Vindication of a Poor Wasted Misrepresented Remnant of the Suffering Anti-Popish Anti-Prelatic Anti-Erastian Anti-Sectarian True Presbyterian Church of Christ in Scotland united together in a General Correspondence. By Way of Reply to Various Accusations in Letters Informations and Conferences given forth against them."
It refuted charges brought against the 'Remnant' of schism (in their eyes a great evil)... The Vindication mourned the estrangement from other Presbyterians who had accepted the government's Indulgences or Edicts of Toleration, and expressed love for them as fellow-ministers 'with whom again we would desire to have communion in ordinances.'
The separation had been forced upon the Society People by the tyranny and temper of the times, but it did not affect their position as being in the succession of the historic Kirk of Scotland.
The document aimed to clear away the hostility and misunderstanding about them that had grown up in Scotland and Holland. (Cameron, ed., Dictionary of Scottish Church History and Theology , p. 429).
