 Traditional Rural Episcopalianism: The North‐East

Show Summary Details


Looks at the maintenance of a distinctive Episcopalian culture in rural Scotland by examining the religious cultures of Episcopalian crofters, farmers, and fisherfolk in Buchan and Aberdeenshire. It seeks to contradict the prevailing historical judgement that Episcopalianism was a religion of the landed classes and to restore a historical voice to these rural classes of Episcopalian Scots. It examines reasons for the longevity of Episcopalianism in this region from the eighteenth to the twentieth century.
