Overview

In the 1500’s, the Scottish Reformation completely altered the religious climate of Scotland. As a major component of the European Protestant Reformation, the political build-up to Scotland’s shift from Catholicism to Protestantism involved nearly all of Europe, and this shift remained a major source of tension centuries later. This period in Scotland reflects an explosive social and political atmosphere, full of dramatic changes in perspective. The Classic Studies on the Scottish Reformation collection offers an easily accessible compilation of texts examining this powerful time in Scottish history. Each text contains an entirely different point of view, allowing this period to be studied from every angle.
