Over seventy leading scholars from around the world, each with expertise in some particular period, theme or body of literature, will contribute essays to the History of Scottish Theology, co-edited by Professor David Fergusson (Edinburgh) and Professor Mark W. Elliott (St Andrews). The three volumes will be published by Oxford University Press in 2019. A full list of contributors and their subject area is set out below. The UK Arts and Humanities Research Council has provided funding towards three seminars to take place for contributors from late 2016 to mid-2017, details of which are also below.Together the three volumes in the series will present in diachronic perspective the debates, thinkers and movements that have characterized theology in Scotland and been exported overseas. Recurrent themes will be assessed, alongside trends and challenges that arose through Renaissance humanism, Reformation teaching, federal theology, the Scottish Enlightenment, evangelicalism, missionary movements, Biblical criticism, idealist philosophy, dialectical theology, existentialism and secularism. Coverage of under-researched areas, including Roman Catholic, Episcopalian and Non-conformist theologies and woman writers, will also be provided.
