Scottish Liturgical Traditions and Religious Politics

This chapter argues that while, for Scottish non-jurors, support for the Jacobites was a political, physical, ecclesiastical and temporal disaster, as far as theology, ecclesiology and liturgy were concerned there was another side to the story; the opposite obtained. The Non-jurors, on account of earthly disappointment, concentrated on the things that were necessary for spiritual well-being and eternal salvation. The Revolution Settlement of 1689-90 gave them a freedom from Erastianism which created an opportunity that pushed the Scottish Episcopal Church towards the cutting edge of liturgy and placed her at the forefront of liturgical development in the Western Church and theological debates on the intermediate state between heaven and hell, as on prayers for the dead, came to be viewed as a spiritual aspect of Enlightenment based on rigorous patristic scholarship and forensic historical enquiry that also drew strength from sacramental continuity since the Reformation. It gave the Scottish Epsicopal Church a unique and distinguished liturgy that had influence beyond Scotland, most notably in the American Episcopal Church after the consecration of Samuel Seabury by three Aberdeenshire Bishops.
