The experiences of being Christian and living amid a culture shaped by various iterations of Christianity are long-standing concerns of Scottish literature. This volume moves through Scotland's literary history, from the early medieval era to the twenty-first century, to explore how Christianity has provided Scottish writers with a framework on which to build their manifold literary selves. Walter Scott, Margaret Oliphant and Edwin Morgan are among the writers revisited in this collection to examine the enduring influence of Christian liturgy, language and belief on Scottish fiction, drama and poetry. These fifteen essays offer contrasting, sometimes disharmonious readings of what it means to be Christian and Scottish, and work to illuminate Scottish literature's complex relationship and interplay with Christianity.
