Ancient Church Dedications in Scotland
By James Murray MacKinlay, M.A. (1914)

Prefatory Note

The object of the volume is two-fold. In the first place, to give some account of the Cathedrals, Parish and Collegiate Churches, Chapels, Hospitals, and Monasteries under the invocation of Saints mentioned in Holy Scripture; and, in the second place, to trace the influence that these Saints have had on ecclesiastical festivals, usages, and symbolism. In a future volume I hope to consider the non-Scriptural dedications.

I am indebted to Mr. David Douglas for his courtesy in allowing me to use the map reproduced from Dr. W. F. Skene’s Celtic Scotland, and the stamp of the Calvary Cross and Sword from Mr. T. S. Muir’s Ecclesiological Notes.
