Bendera yang digunakan oleh Covenanter Scotland.

Covenanter atau Penyetia Perjanjian merupakan gerakan Presbyterian Scotland yang memainkan bahagian penting dalam sejarah Scotland, dan tidak begitu penting dalam sejarah England dan Ireland, ketika abad ke-17. Mazhab Presbyterian menyusur galur sejarahnya kepada Covenanter dan kerap menggabungkan nama ini menyambung idea dan tradisi di Scotland dan antarabangsa.

Nama mereka terbit daripada perkataan convenant bermaksud jalur, dokumen atau perjanjian sah, dengan merujuk pada Perjanjian antara Tuhan dengan bani Israel dalam Wasiat Lama.[1][2]

    In the summer of 1643, the Scottish parliament and General Assembly of the Church entered into negotiations for an alliance with the English Parliament. Historians have concentrated on the clauses of the Solemn League and Covenant, the treaty which resulted from those deliberations.

    "Following the outbreak of the Civil War in England, in 1642, a committee of noblemen and clergy from both Scotland and England composed a document entitled the 'Solemn League and Covenant'. It was signed between September and October, in both countries, and later in the same year, in Ireland. This committed the Scots to supply an army to aid the Parliamentarian Par against the Royalists in the Civil War. As in the National Covenant, the signatories pledged to 'amend our lives, and each one to go before another in the example of a real Reformation'. As with the National Covenant they entered into a mutual contract with God where the signatory promised to reform his or her person, in this case, not only for the upholding of 'the Religion', but that 'the Lord may tu away his wrath, and heavy indignation'. (All quotations are from 'The Solemn League and Covenant', reprinted in SB, ILL, pp.122-5). The success of the Scottish National Covenant was thought by many sectarians and clergy alike to have been the direct result of the process of mutual bonding between the nation and God. Thus, at a time of rising religious schism, a threatened invasion of Irish Catholics and Royalist-Parliamentarian hostilities, the English Parliamentarians bound themselves to the same course that had appeared to guarantee the Scots 'virtually unmitigated success' (Edward J. Cowan, 'The Making of the National Covenant', in John Morrell, ed. (1988), p.75).
