Alexander Peden [1626-1686] is one of the most fascinating personages of the Covenanter period during the 17th century in Scotland. Revered as one of the most influential Covenanting preachers, he was arrested and imprisoned repeatedly; even being banished to work as a slave on the American Plantations. But when the ship masters heard the reason for his being sent to America, they released him. 

He was known as the prophet both because of the incredible spiritual power which seemed to attend his preaching, but also because he, with some regularity, would receive information obtained in prayer regarding precise people, troop movements to protect the Covenanters, and the impending deaths of people from among them.
