Focusing on the legacy of religion in Scotland we are a multi-institutional collaboration financed by the Royal Society of Edinburgh’s research networking scheme.

Due to its fundamental role in shaping Scottish culture, religion continues to affect the nation on a day-to-day basis. We seek to deal directly with the role of religion as a formative and yet divisive force in Scottish society and highlight its positive and negative functions in the development of the nation's culture.

The network is committed to disseminating the very best research on this subject through public lectures, conference and publications. The network also publishes a book series with Edinburgh University Press entitled 'Scottish Religious Cultures: Historical Perspectives'.
