Rowan Strong examines the history of Scottish Episcopalianism in the nineteenth century as a response to the new urbanizing and industrializing society of the time. In particular, he looks at the various Episcopalian sub-cultures which had to come to terms with these social and economicchanges. These sub-cultures include Highland Gaels; North-East crofters, farmers and fisherfolk; urban Episcopalians; aristocratic Episcopalians; and Evangelicals and Anglo-Catholics. He provides also an outline of the history of Episcopalianism in Scotland from the sixteenth century to 1900, RowanStrong addresses the issue of Episcopalianism and Scottish identity, which is topical today.

Editorial Reviews

`a welcome addition to recent literature on the Oxford Movement, for it provides valuable insight into the impact of the Movement in Scotland ... Historians have concentrated almost entirely on its influence on the English churches, and have given little attention to its effect in the rest ofBritain. Rowan Strong's careful and meticulous study is a salutary corrective to this. This is a carefully researched biography, meticulous rather than scintillating, perhaps, but it fills a real gap in the history of the Oxford Movement ... he provides a sympathetic portrait of a man who, notwithout justification, has been called 'the Scottish Pusey'.'Graham Patrick, Epworth Review, May 1996
