Scottish Gods

Religion in Modern Scotland

Steve Bruce

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Explores how religion in Scotland has become more varied over time: growth in Catholicism and Charismatic Christian fellowships; easternisation of Scotland's religious vocabulary through Buddhism and Hinduism; the growth of the Muslim population; and pursuit of spiritual interests once considered pagan.
  • Looks at the decline in the Protestant-Catholic divide.
  • Discusses controversies over the proper public place of religion.
