John Sage (1652-1711) was a Scottish nonjuring Episcopal bishop & controversialist in the Jacobite interest. Abandoning his position in the High Kirk of Glasgow after the deposition of James VII/II in 1688, the non-juror Sage moved to Edinburgh & composed several protestations. Most of Sage's publications were anonymous, but their authorship was well known; his controversial writings were shrewd protestations at the intolerant political & religious policy of the new monarchy.
