When Bleakie discovers that the pious and honorable Fertig wants to take responsibility for his actions by pleading guilty, the young attorney is forced to rethink not only his career but his life.
A divinity student from the University of St Andrews has cracked a religious code that has baffled academics for generations.
The third-year undergraduate was able to decipher the shorthand after an academic traced a longhand equivalent.Who was the theologian?
Andrew Fuller , who was born in Cambridgeshire in 1754, became a Baptist minister, and is best known for founding the Baptist Missionary Society.
While he wrote A Number of influential works before his death in 1815, his early sermons and other documents have survived only as shorthand notes.
He recognised this as the date of Fuller's induction into the pastorate of a church in Kettering and knew that he would have been required to give A Confession of faith as part of that service.
After discovering that the two texts were the same, he recruited Jonny Woods through the university's undergraduate research assistant scheme to help.'Astonishing moment'
After just a few weeks The Student from Coleraine, County Londonderry , was able to translate the shorthand, using the longhand version in the same way that the Rosetta Stone was used as a crib to unlock The Secret of Egyptian hieroglyphics.
Dr Holmes said: "When Jonny told me he could read these documents it was an astonishing moment.
"To be reading words of his that no-one had read since he preached them in 1782 - it's one of those moments you live for as an academic. "
Two sermons have already been translated, and Jonny is working on more of Fuller's Early Work .
