Summary expansion
Much of the earlier history is borrowed from Hector Boece and John Major, but in the later sections Leslie gives an independent account--from the Catholic point of view--which serves as a valuable counter to the point of view put forward by Knox and Buchanan. Leslie led a turbulent life, and was imprisoned twice, in England and France, as a result of his efforts on behalf of Mary, Queen of Scots whose cause he always staunchly defended. He died in an Augustinian monastery near Brussels still waiting to repossess his see at Ross from which he had been ejected nearly thirty years before
