FPW Talk - Scotland's Pilgrim Kings: Royal Pilgrimage in the Later Middle Ages

Saturday, November 17, 2018
2:00 - 3:30pm
 
The last in our series of FPW talks.

Many of Scotland’s medieval rulers, notably Robert the Bruce and James IV, were committed pilgrims. They made devotional journeys to holy places throughout the kingdom, including locations in Fife. This talk will outline the experience and motivations of Scotland’s ‘pilgrim kings’, while also considering the broader significance of pilgrimage in late medieval life.

David Santiuste teaches history at the Centre for Open Learning, University of Edinburgh. His most recent book is The Hammer of the Scots: Edward I and the Scottish Wars of Independence. He is currently researching more peaceful aspects of late medieval society, including Scottish pilgrimage.

Venue: North Queensferry Church of Scotland, Ferryhill Road, North Queensferry, KY11 1HE.
