I was recently asked on Twitter for a recommendation for books on Scottish Catholic history, interpreted widely. Having made it clear that this is merely a highly personal (and possibly even silly) selection, here it is:
1) George Mackay Brown and the Scottish Catholic Imagination by @LindenBicket https://t.co/0AN3znxY0q Terrific study not just for GMB but as a gateway into Scottish Catholic C20th intellectual life.— Lazarus Redivivus (@cumlazaro) May 15, 2018
3) I don't really understand the Scottish Reformation: in particular, I'm not sure to what extent an analysis something like Duffy's Stripping of the Altars could be applied here. Most helpful I've found so far is The Origins of the Scottish Reformation https://t.co/nVOTeFytU6— Lazarus Redivivus (@cumlazaro) May 15, 2018
5) And finally: A Cairn of Small Stones -which is a charming novel about Catholic Highland life in the C18: https://t.co/TOFeM7DYsq— Lazarus Redivivus (@cumlazaro) May 15, 2018
Interested to hear of alternative recommendations/comments!
