On This Day

1843 – The Disruption in Edinburgh of the Free Church of Scotland from the Church of Scotland.
The Disruption of 1843[1] was a schism[2] or division[3] within the established Church of Scotland, in which 450 evangelical ministers of the Church broke away,[4] over the issue of the Church’s relationship with the State, to form the Free Church of Scotland.[5] It came at the end of a bitter conflict within the established Church, and had major effects not just within the Church, but also upon Scottish civic life.[6]
