Excerpt from The Scottish Historical Review, 1912, Vol. 9

Unfortunately, the native material at our command is singularly scanty. To whatever cause - the ignorant zeal of the 'rascal multitude' at the Reformation, or subsequent wanton neglect the loss of the major portion of the vast array of ecclesiastical muniments, other than those of a purely legal nature, that undoubtedly existed in pre-reformation times, constitutes one of the great misfortunes of our country. The Black Friars excelled all the other religious communities in the number and variety of the records which, under their statutes, they were bound to compile; and yet, but little is now extant from which any idea of their personal life can be obtained. At the head quarters of the whole Order at Rome, also, very little informa tion relating to Scotland has been preserved 1 but, in recent years, great literary activity has been evinced by members of the Order, and many of their records, so far as extant, have been published. These include their Constitutions - codified in 1228, and again in 1239 - the Acta of the Chapter General and of many of the leading provinces in Europe, the more famous chronicles, etc.
