From the time of the Scottish Reformation in 1560 until 1689, the Church of Scotland kept the episcopal form of governance it inherited from the Catholic churches it took over. Thus, while its theology was Calvinistic, its organization remained Anglican during this period. In 1689, it abolished the dioceses and adopted a true presbyterian form of governance.
