Community and Identity in the Religious Traditions of North East Scotland
The North East is perhaps the most varied and distinctive region in Scotland in its religious beliefs and practices. Accepting the Reformation reluctantly, it became the principal centre in the country of Episcopalianism and Jacobitism. But theological conservatism was paralleled by a willingness to innovate and experiment, so that for a time the Society of Friends, and more recently various varieties of the Brethren, have had a significant following, while the Disruption of 1843 and the successive revivals of the hundred years from 1850-1950 had a considerable impact on the region. After Columba - After Calvin is the first volume to offer a map of this fascinating terrain.
