Edinburgh and the Reformation

£24.99

Product description

The book studies Edinburgh during the time of the 16th century Reformation,at the time of the catholic Mary, Queen of Scots. It pays attention to the nature of Scottish society itself and its consciousness of rank, tradition and precedent, in which context the Reformation was only likely to make progress where it did not disturb the existing order. The early promise of Knox and his Protestant reformers of a new society therefore provoked a backlash and had to be abandoned for a new conciliatory approach. The author anticipates similar studies of other localities in Scotland to follow.

This hard cover book is in good order, with some turning of the corners of the cover and some tanning of the dust jacket. Interior pages are very clean and legible.
