Excerpt from A History of the Scottish People From the Earliest Times, Vol. 3

The effect of this reaction upon the clergy was such that even the friars themselves began to preach against the pride and idleness of the prelates, the corruptions of the ecclesiastical body in general, and the necessity of a reforma tion of the church; and when they had aroused the general attention upon the subject the people, who eagerly listened, were convinced of the necessity of a change and prepared for a higher kind of instruction. It needed but this to rouse the priesthood from their repose and convince them not only of the necessity of stricter lives but of a stricter persecution; and, indignant at this opposition from the members of their own community, they resolved to answer them with the arguments of fire and faggot. The Sign of heresy it was now easy for them to detect, for it chiefly displayed itself in attacks upon the vices of the clergy. SO strict, also, was this inquest that even a heretical dream was enough to subject the dreamer to trial and punishment. An instance of this was given in the case of one Richard Carmichael, a singer in the royal chapel of Stirling, who happened in his Sleep to say, The devil take away the priests, for they are a greedy pack I For words so unconsciously uttered he was accused of heresy by the dean of the chapel, and only escaped the fire by recanting his imputed errors.
