Cartoon, The Reel of Bogie
Add to album

This cartoon entitled 'The Reel of Bogie' dates from around 1843. It was possibly drawn by an Edinburgh artist and caricaturist, Benjamin Crombie and is one of a series of cartoons on the disputes between the Church of Scotland and the government.

The cartoon refers to the opposition of the congregations and presbytery of Strathbogie in Aberdeenshire to an unpopular minister.

The greatest in a succession of splits to affect the Church of Scotland came on 18 May 1843, when around 470 ministers walked out of the General Assembly over the question of who should appoint ministers and the respective rights of Church and State.
