The Last Things

The Last Things

(p.175) Epilogue The Last Things
George Mackay Brown and the Scottish Catholic Imagination

Linden Bicket

Edinburgh University Press

The book’s epilogue revisits the key features of Brown’s Catholic sacramental universe. It notes the significance of biblical echo, allusion, and Brown’s saints, martyrs, reformers, and transformative moments of grace. The epilogue stresses the importance of Brown’s use of ceremony and ritual, and emphasises his interest in (and create use of) apocrypha, midrash, and folklore. The epilogue contends that Brown’s work has been critically framed in incomplete and even damaging ways, but that Brown was a Scottish Catholic artist whose grammar of devotion was global.
