William Sinclair, Bishop of Dunkeld
In the Scottish Banner newspaper for March 2001 on page 28 there is a
very informative article entitled "The Piety of Sir William Wallace." This
article states that about 1314, nine years after Sir William Wallace's death,
William Sinclair, Bishop of Dunkeld, commissioned John Arnold Blair to write
down all he knew about Sir William Wallace.
Recently I read Nigel Tranter's excellent novel The Wallace. Bishop
William Sinclair is portrayed as a close friend of Sir William Wallace.
Bishop Sinclair fought with Wallace and raised other men to fight with him.
Bishop Sinclair was referred to as "the fighting Bishop." I would be greatly
interested in learning more about him if anyone has additional information.
