초록/해제  
This thesis is a study of covenant theology in Scotland and how it articulated a particular notion of Scottish nationalism in the seventeenth century. The group of ministers who developed this theology---connected by education, friendship, and marriage---argued against multiple rival narratives to define Scotland as the elect Protestant nation. Through a focus on sermons, it shows how these arguments were developed, particularly in 1638 in building support for the Scottish covenant. There were multiple ways in which the nation was viewed and understood in seventeenth century Scotland. Nations are constructed over periods of time and reconstructed again making them episodic. Hence the Scottish ministers, constituting a very small group, promoted a covenantal concept of the nation that fit into their understanding of elect nationhood and persuaded others to envision the nation through their sermons. The ministers, however, were not the only ones to create national identity and the challenges they faced against rival identities often caused them to push their covenantal cause further. Thus the nation---and what the ministers meant by it---at 1560 would differ than it would at 1638 and change again when confronted by the potential for a union with England in the 1640's. Understanding this strand of Scottish nationalism helps explain some of the tensions between English and Scottish preachers in the Westminster Assembly, and the divisions that arose over the concept of election and the failure of the Solemn League and Covenant.
