MACCULLAGH M'CULLOCH At the solicitation of his friend Andrew Thomson, M'Crie became a contributor to The Edinburgh Christian Instructor, and in 1817 he subjected some of Sir W. Scott's works to a criticism which took the form of a vindication of the Covenanters. Preserving the continuity of his historical studies, he followed up his first work with The Life of Andrew Melville (1819). In 1827 he published a History of the Progress and Suppression of the Reformation in Italy, and in 1829 a History of the Progress and Suppression of the Reformation in Spain.
His latest literary undertaking was a life of John Calvin. Only three chapters were completed when the writer died on the sth of August 1835, leaving four sons and one daughter.
