Abstract
The new history of the Scottish parliament has confirmed that it was more complex and independent after the Restoration of 1660 than has been hitherto believed. Charles I (1600-1649) was removed from power in part because he sought to emasculate the Scottish parliament. The restoration of episcopacy and reimposition of royal prerogatives hides a complex picture of parliament as the most significant institution of medieval and early modern Scotland and a genuine representative of Scottish reality
