Description

How did Scots live and change in the dying days of an independent kingdom?This essential history focuses on society and religious life in Reformation Scotland from 1470 to 1625.

Now re-issued in the popular New History of Scotland series, with a contextual foreword by Keith Brown as tribute to the career of Jenny Wormald, who did so much to transform our understanding of early modern Scotland.The book traces the turbulent and often calamitous evolution of Scotland from medieval and feudal to the modern state.

Whilst undergoing the transformation in religious life from Catholic to Protestant, Scotland also had to contend with a changing monarchy, war and government.This introductory text covers all the key events of the period including Scotland's alliances with France, treaties with the English and the Union of the Crowns.

At the heart of the book is a detailed examination of the spiritual origins and secular effects of the Reformation as it transformed root and branch the older medieval structure of Scotland.
