William Sinclair, Bishop of Dunkeld and Sir William Wallace


     In the Scottish Banner newspaper for December 2001 on Page 25 there is 
an excellent article entitled "William Wallace Saint and Martyr?".  It talks 
about a book published by Alloway Publishing, Darvel, Ayrshire, Scotland in 
1999 entitled In Pursuit of Sir William Wallace.  It was written by Craufuird 
C. Loudoun.  This book describes the efforts of William Sinclair, Bishop of 
Dunkeld, a close friend of Wallace, to have Wallace made a saint in the Roman 
Catholic Church.  William Sinclair petitioned the Pope to have Sir William 
Wallace made a saint between 1309 and 1336 A.D.
