Multiconfessional Scotland

(p.56) 3 Multiconfessional Scotland
Scotland in Revolution, 1685-1690

Alasdair Raffe

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the nature of religious coexistence and competition in Scotland in the years 1687–90. It argues that previous studies of the period have paid too little attention to the rival confessional groups’ attempts to win worshippers in a pluralistic religious marketplace. It then examines some of the results of multiconfessionalism, in compromising the effectiveness of the registration of marriages and baptisms, poor relief and church discipline. By emphasising the ways in which James’s toleration undermined crucial social institutions, the chapter uncovers hitherto neglected results of multiconfessional coexistence.

Keywords:   Religious toleration, Preaching, Conversion, Registration of marriages and baptisms, Poor relief, Church discipline
