    James VI of Scotland, not IV. Also I believe the failed Bye Plot and Main Plot may have helped James reconsider his attitude towards Catholic toleration.

    • You believe right!

      And dammit, of course he was James the Sixth, and of course I typed it backwards and didn’t catch it on any of my re-reads. Because I’m stupid like that! Good eye and thanks!

      (You want to know what makes that error extra worse? My senior thesis as a History major back in undergrad was on… get this… the persecution of Catholics under the STUARTS. This guy? Bloody James bloody Charles Bloody STUART. God DAMN it!)

      Thanks again!
