Description

This volume considers Scottish architecture in the century following the Reformation - a period previously neglected by architectural historians despite being a time of rapid social and political change, with the move of the Royal Court to England in 1603, huge religious tumult and greatly increased overseas contact. It examines how the principal social groups within Scotland responded to the stimulus of Renaissance classicism from the continent whilst retaining a distinctively Scottish style. It shows how deep-rooted assumptions were challenged by the Reformation, paving the way for a proliferation of architectural inventions.show more
