Father Patrick Anderson


Missionary and writer. He entered the Society of Jesus, 1597, and in 1609 was appointed to the Scottish mission, where his labors were successful and his escapes marvelous. In 1615 he became rector of Scots College. On his return to Scotland, he was betrayed and imprisoned, and later liberated, probably through the offices of the French ambassador. He wrote, among other things, “Memoirs of the Scottish Saints.”
