The statue on the right is Alexander Henderson, a Scottish covenanter.
A clergyman in the Church of Scotland, Henderson was a protege of Archbishop Gladstanes who granted him the kirk of Leuchars in Fife in 1612 where Henderson encountered opposition from his anti-episcopalian parishioners. Around the time of Gladstane's death in 1615, Henderson himself became a convert to the Presbyterian cause, possibly as a result of hearing a sermon by the charismatic preacher Robert Bruce.

In 1637, Henderson emerged as one of the leaders of the opposition to Archbishop Laud's innovations in the Scottish church. He helped organise the prayer book riots in Edinburgh when the new liturgy was introduced and was among the Supplicants who petitioned against the innovations after he was ordered to use the new prayer book in his parish or face prosecution. In February 1638, Henderson and the lawyer Johnston of Wariston were commissioned to draft the National Covenant to unite the Supplicants. As the Covenanter movement gained momentum, Henderson and Wariston agitated for a General Assembly to settle all religious controversies, resulting in the calling of the Glasgow Assembly of November 1638, at which the Covenanters abolished episcopacy from the Kirk. Elected moderator of the Assembly, Henderson preached a famous sermon known as The Bishops' Doom and pronounced the sentence of excommunication on the Scottish bishops.

Early in 1639, Henderson left his parish at Leuchars to become minister at the High Kirk of St Giles in Edinburgh. He wrote several tracts that helped gain support for the Covenanters amongst English Puritans. After the Bishops' Wars of 1639-40, Henderson was one of the six Scottish commissioners who negotiated the Treaty of Ripon then went to London to finalise the negotiations. When King Charles visited Scotland in 1641, Henderson was appointed dean of the Chapel Royal at Holyrood and preached before the King several times. His cordial relationship with King Charles aroused suspicion amongst some of the Covenanters. However, Henderson was a leading member of the committee that negotiated the Solemn League and Covenant with the English Parliament and he attended the Westminster Assembly which imposed a limited Presbyterian church settlement in England.

Henderson assisted the commissioners of the English and Scottish Parliaments at the unsuccessful Uxbridge Treaty early in 1645. After the King surrendered to the Scottish army in May 1646, Henderson was one of the commissioners who attempted to negotiate the Newcastle Propositions as a basis for a settlement between the King, Parliament and the Scots. Henderson is said to have fallen to his knees and wept as he pleaded with the King to accept the Propositions, but to no avail. The strain of the negotiations had an adverse effect on Henderson's health, which was already fragile. He died in Edinburgh on 19 August 1646 and was buried in Greyfriars churchyard.
The figure on the left is Bishop Forbes.
For more than a century after the Reformation, worship in St Giles’ was disrupted by the disagreements about church government. In 1633, King Charles I appointed Scottish Episcopal bishops in Scotland and in 1635 William Forbes became the first bishop of the new diocese of Edinburgh, with St Giles’ as its cathedral, which it remained until 1638 and again from 1661-1689. That St Giles’ is commonly called a cathedral dates from this period.

Scotland Coat of Arms - Unicorns are DANGEROUS!

Scotland Coat of Arms - Unicorns are DANGEROUS!

Since the Union of the Crowns in 1603, a separate version of the royal arms has been used in Scotland, giving the Scottish elements pride of place.

The shield is quartered, depicting in the first and fourth quarters the lion rampant of Scotland; in the second, the three lions passant guardant of England; and in the third, the harp of Ireland.

The crest atop the Crown of Scotland is a red lion, seated and forward facing, itself wearing the Crown of Scotland and holding the two remaining elements of the Honours of Scotland, namely the Sword of State and the Sceptre of Scotland. This was also the crest used in the Royal Arms of the Kingdom of Scotland. The motto, in Scots, appears above the crest, in the tradition of Scottish heraldry, and is an abbreviated form of the full motto: In My Defens God Me Defend.

The supporters change sides and both appear wearing the crowns of their respective Kingdom. The dexter supporter is a crowned and chained unicorn, symbolising Scotland. According to legend a free unicorn was considered a very dangerous beast; therefore the heraldic unicorn is chained.
The sinister supporter is a crowned lion, symbolising England. Between each supporter and the shield is a lance displaying the flag of their respective Kingdom.

The coat also features both the motto Nemo me impune lacessit (No one wounds (touches) me with impunity) and, surrounding the shield, the collar of the Order of the Thistle.
