The Jesuit History Research Group presents: “The Historiography of the Jesuits in Scotland: Missions, Martyrs, and Minorities”.
The history of the Jesuits in Scotland has been shaped by so many of the dynamics central to understanding the larger history of Scotland. From Scotland’s relationship to England and continental Europe to its internal Protestant-Catholic or highland-lowland divisions, investigating Scottish Jesuits can tell us a great deal about the history of Scotland in the early-modern period. This talk will examine the historiography of the Jesuits in Scotland as it stands today and offer new directions for thinking about the Society of Jesus in early-modern Scotland.
