St John's Kirk is a late medieval building on the site of an important 12th century church. The Kirk was the scene of John Knox's famous sermon in 1559 which launched the Scottish Reformation. The church was dedicated to St John, and this dedicated gave Perth its first name, St Johnstoun. Within only a few decades St John's must have gained a considerable reputation and prestige, for when King Alexander III died in 1286 his heart was buried here.
