This is the only study written of the United Presbyterians in Canada. It surveys the role and significant contributions of a Scottish Church in early 19th-century Upper Canada's (Canada West's) society and politics. It examines the place of the Secession Church in Canadian religious history and assesses the importance of Proudfoot's contribution. In particular, his views on the Church as being too Scottish and his attempts to make it more "Canadian" are considered. Shows how his faith shaped his view of politics and society and his conception of the role of the Church in Canadian society.
