Our project us based on thousands of pages of manuscript evidence, all housed in the National Records of Scotland, Edinburgh. Much of this information was put online in March 2021 and is available at the ScotlandsPeople website here.
We have built a guide to the presbytery archival material. It links to the ScotlandsPeople service, so you can find the relevant presbytery on a map and go straight to the manuscript sources in a couple clicks. You can access the resource here or use the embedded version below.
Mapping the Scottish Reformation uses Wikidata, an open system for structured data, to manage all of our information on clerical careers. To find out how we query our data, you can watch this brief video.
Other Digital Humanities Projects
The last decade has seen a wide range of Digital Humanities projects relating to the history of Scotland. We hope some of these may be of use to followers of Mapping the Scottish Reformation.
