Show Summary Details


The existence of both Scots and Scotland were known and recognised well beyond the British Isles. By the mid-thirteenth century this awareness had been increased and defined by the recognition of changes which had occurred within Scotland. The Kings of Scots exercised increasingly effective lordship over a realm which extended over northern Britain and into the Western Isles. The papacy recognised a Scottish ecclesiastical province with its own rights and liberties. These provided definitions of Scotland as a separate community in terms which were easily understood across western Europe. Ironically, this status was a product of the external influences which had been at work on Scotland during the century before 1214. The process of internal change during this period had also ‘Europeanised’ Scotland, linking the kingdom and its inhabitants to the values and populations of the core regions of Europe.
