The Clergy in Early Modern Scotland

12 May, New College, Edinburgh
Parish clergy in early modern Scotland were central figures in communicating religious practice and understanding to their parishioners. As the early modern period progressed, priests and, later, ministers had to respond to a variety of changes in theology, socio-economic circumstances, and political processes. As early modern studies has embraced a range of different models of religious, social, and political change—from top-down to bottom-up—the role of the minister remains ripe for further investigation. This one day conference organised by the University of Edinburgh and Newman University, Birmingham, will explore these issues further.

This event will cost £10, payable on the day.
