John Jamieson (March 3, 1759 - July 12, 1838) was a Scottish Secessionist minister and student of language, devoted particularly to the Scottish language, which he argued to be of Pictish origin (which, in turn, he held to be of Gothic origin), as well as author of a further theory that the Greek and Latin languages were of likewise Gothic origins.
