Publisher's Description

A beautiful, informative book, illustrated with black and white and colour photographs.

Sitting majestically atop the ridge of Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile, St Giles’ looks imposingly down upon Scotland’s capital. It has been at the centre to some of the most significant moments in Scotland’s history and centre-stage to some of its biggest players.

This book, based on new research, tells the story of Scotland’s most famous church from its foundation in the 1120s through the 17th-century Prayer Book riot, the writing of the Covenant in 1638, the execution of Montrose and Argyll, becoming the seat of the Order of the Thistle to the current culmination of an ambitious thirty-year renewal programme which has brought colour and light to a living church. St Giles’ is home not only to its own congregation but also to regular civic and national services, not to mention nearly half a million visitors a year.
