‌Reid, S. J., Humanism and Calvinism: Andrew Melville and the Universities of Scotland, 1560–1625 (St Andrews, 2011).

This book surveys the transformation of Scotland's medieval and Catholic university system into a greatly expanded Protestant one in the decades following the Scottish Reformation of 1560. It also assesses the contribution of religious reformer Andrew Melville to this process in the context of broader social and cultural developments. Through systematic use of largely neglected manuscript sources, the book offers fresh perspectives on both Andrew Melville and the development of Scottish higher education post-1560.
