"Let all who desire to be truly informed of the beginning, rise, height, and length of the tyranny of that 28 years' persecution read the sufferings and grievances of Presbyterians, especially those of them nick-named Cameronians, written by the famous Mr. Shields" (Walker, Biographia Presbyteriana, Vol. 1, p. 123). This book contains "an account of Renwick's examinations and imprisonments at London; his being sent down to Scotland; his examinations before the privy council, justiciary, Lords of the Articles, etc.; his disputations with the Bishops and others: with large and pertinent observations and reflections upon all the material passages of these trials, examination and disputations. Together with a large and elaborate defence of the doctrine of resistance, or defensive arms, of the Apologetical Declaration and other heads of suffering; as likewise a clear and full confutation of the oath of Abjuration" (Johnston, Treasury of the Scottish Covenant, p. 372).
