Summary This book analyses the development of Catholic schooling in Scotland over the course of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Scholarship of this period tends to be dominated by discussions of the 1872 and 1918 Education (Scotland) Acts: while these crucial acts are certainly not neglected in this volume, the editors and contributors also examine the key figures and events that shaped Catholic education and Catholic schools in Scotland. Focusing on such diverse themes as lay female teachers and non-formal learning, this volume illuminates many under-researched and neglected aspects of Catholic schooling in Scotland. This wide-ranging edited collection will illuminate fresh historical insights that do not focus exclusively on Catholic schooling, but are also relevant to the wider Scottish educational community. It will appeal to students and scholars of Catholic schooling, schooling in Scotland, as well as Christian schooling more generally. Stephen McKinney is Professor in the School of Education at the University of Glasgow, UK. His research interests include Catholic schooling and education, as well as faith schooling more widely. Raymond McCluskey is a former lecturer in the School of Education at the University of Glasgow, UK. His research interests focus on the history of education, particularly within Scotland, and the history of the Catholic community in Scotland
