New Scottish Theology History Launched

Monday February 13 2020


A major new collection of writing on Scottish Theology will be launched tomorrow evening (Tuesday January 14) in Edinburgh.

The three-volume The History of Scottish Theology brings together 79 essays surveying the history of Scottish theology from the early middle ages to the late 20th century. It discusses key figures, movements, traditions and controversies, while also considering the reception of theology in art, literature, hymnody and architecture, and examining the dispersion of Scottish theology to other parts of the world through exile, migration and missionary activity.

It is jointly edited by the Rev Professor David Fergusson, Professor of Divinity at the University of Edinburgh, and Professor Mark Elliott, Professor of Divinity and Biblical Criticism at the University of Glasgow; and has contributions from over 70 leading scholars from around the world.

The launch event will take place in St Giles’ Cathedral tomorrow from 5.30pm. Following an introduction from Professors Fergusson and Elliott, an expert panel will reflect on each of the three volumes. Guest speakers are Professors Jane Dawson and Ewen Cameron of the University of Edinburgh and Professor Trevor Hart from the University of St Andrews.

The event is free and no booking is required.
