This thesis considers the life of John Winram [c. 1492-1582] who was one of Scotland's leading ecclesiastics in both the pre-Reformation and post-Reformation Churches. It beings with Winram's early career in St. Andrew's priory, where he became subprior in 1535. A radical re-evaluation of events in St Andrews in 1546-47 reveals the subprior's efforts to introduce fundamental religious reform within the burgh while remaining within the Catholic Church. The impact that this had on John Knox, and the resulting dramatic upsurge in reform-minded clearly entering into the priory in the 1550s is uncovered.
