Rowan Strong examines the history of Scottish Episcopalianism and its various sub-cultures in the nineteenth century as they came to terms with the new urbanizing and industrializing society of the time. He provides an outline of the history of Episcopalianism in Scotland from the sixteenth century to 1900, and addresses the issue of Episcopalianism and Scottish identity, which is topical today.
Rowan Strong is Lecturer in Church History at Murdoch University, Australia
