Re-evalutes the medieval Church in Reformation Scotland from the perspective of legal history This book examines the Scottish Reformation from a new perspective--that of the legal system and lawyers. For the leading lawyers of the day, the Scottish Reformation presented a constitutional and jurisdictional crisis of the first order. In the face of such a challenge moderate judges, lawyers and officers of state sought to restore order in a time of revolution by retaining much of the medieval legacy of Catholic law and order in Scotland.
