English: Guthrie, minister at Stirling, was the second man (after the Duke of Argyll) to be executed for opposing Charles II's reintroduction of episcopacy after the Restoration of 1660. He is reported to have lifted the handkerchief from his face and shouted to the crowd, "The covenants, the covenants, shall yet be Scotland's reviving!". (Guthrie was executed at the mercat cross in Edinburgh's High Street. Artistic licence has been used in depicting the execution as having taken place in the Grassmarket which became the main place of execution for Covenanters in the 1680s.)
