Memoirs of distinguished Scottish female characters (some who were martyred), embracing the period of the covenant and the persecution. The introduction notes the importance of the lives of these courageous women, when it states: 'They have especially by the magnanimity with which they suffered in the cause of truth, emphatically taught us the important principle that we are in all things and at all times to do what is right; and as to the disapprobation, opposition, and persecution of men, in whatever way manifested, or to whatever extent, we are to let that take its chance, a principle, the importance of which it is difficult to over-estimate; which lies at the foundation of all that is great and good in character; which has enabled the greatest and the best men, by the blessing of God, to achieve the great purposes they have formed for advancing the highest interests of mankind, and upon which it is necessary for the good soldier of Christ to act in every age, in an age in which the church enjoys tranquillity, as well as when she suffers persecution.'
Samuel Rutherford's (and others) correspondence with these exceptional Christian women is noted throughout.
