Gillespie, George

▪ Scottish minister and writer
born Jan. 21, 1613, Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scot.
died Dec. 17, 1648, Kirkcaldy

      leader of the Church of Scotland and polemical writer, who laboured for the autonomy and preservation of his church.

      The son of a parish minister, Gillespie was educated at the University of St. Andrews. His first work, A Dispute Against the English Popish Ceremonies Obtruded Upon the Church of Scotland (1637), was followed by other publications that were highly controversial and hostile toward state domination of the church. In 1638 he was ordained a minister and in the same year was a member of the Glasgow general assembly.

      In 1640 he accompanied the commissioners of the peace to England and was one of the first systematically to expound Presbyterian ideals to the English Puritans. As a result he was moved to Edinburgh in 1642 and helped to frame the Solemn League and Covenant. In 1643 he was appointed one of the four Scottish ministers to the Westminster Assembly. In 1645 he drafted the Act of Assembly sanctioning the directory of public worship, and in London he also contributed to the Westminster confession of faith. Gillespie was elected moderator of the assembly in 1648 but died a short time later.
