Episcopalianism in Nineteenth-Century Scotland: Religious responses to a modernizing society
Strong, R. (2002) Episcopalianism in Nineteenth-Century Scotland: Religious responses to a modernizing society. Oxford University Press, Oxford, England.
Episcopalianism in nineteenth‐century Scotland is not an institutional history of the Scottish Episcopal Church. Rather, it seeks to identify various sub‐groups and cultures of Scottish Episcopalians in the nineteenth century and what was important to their religious identity. In addition, it concentrates on how these groups of Episcopalians responded to the emerging industrial and urban society of Scotland at the time. Included among Scottish Episcopalians are Episcopalian Gaels in the Highlands; North‐east crofters, farmers and fisherfolk; urban Episcopalians; and aristocratic men and women. An additional major theme of the book is Episcopalianism and Scottish identity during the nineteenth century, examined through the various indigenous traditions that emerged in eighteenth‐century Episcopalianism and the influence of Anglicization.
