Publications – Bibles and Scotland

Research projects tend to have quite a long afterlife.  Publications take their time, to digest, submit and revise.

And when work was actually great fun, as with looking at the array of Scottish manuscripts during the project, returning to these materials for publication is only natural.  So, without further ado, here are a few publications, which came out of the project, either in research or revision:

– “The earliest evidence for anti-Lollard polemics in medieval Scotland”, The Innes Review 64 (2013), pp. 227-234.  {this short piece will be familiar to readers of the blog – it is based on the note first announced in ‘Gloved Manuscripts‘}

– (ed. with Laura Light) Form and Function in the Late Medieval Bible, Library of the Written Word: The Manuscript World, Leiden:Brill, 2013.  This is an in-depth exploration of the type of manuscripts explored in the manuscript workshops during the project.  Most of the book is available freely online at:

– Approaching the Bible in Medieval England, Manchester Medieval Studies, Manchester:Manchester University Press, 2013.  This is an approachable study of how people actually got to know their Bibles in the late Middle Ages.
