The History of Edinburgh: From Dun Eidyn to Festival City.
I am an early modern religious and political historian. I am interested in the interaction between the Staurt Kingdoms and their national churches during the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. My main rearch interest focus on the impact of the Revolution of 1688-89 on the religious landscape in Scotland. Outside of this my wider interests include the history of political thought, and how power was exercised during the early modern period.
