SALVAGING SACRED SIGNS: INTERPRETING WORSHIP AS PART OF THE CHURCH OF SCOTLAND'S CATHOLIC HERITAGE

Dr Holmes, author of the newly published Sacred Signs in Reformation Scotland (OUP), suggests that a (maybe even the) key emphasis in the journey towards reformation in the Scottish church was how liturgy was interpreted - by Catholics and Protestants. He proposes a distinctive multi-disciplinary approach to enable the historical investigation but one that could equally be applied to contemporary worship.
