The Search for Salvation is an innovative and interdisciplinary study of lay faith in Scotland in the later Middle Ages, examining both the religious ideas and practices of the people, and the ways in which these were shaped by images in literature, art and church writings. Contrary to traditional views, which portray the late medieval Scottish church as weak and corrupt, the book argues for the vitality and flourishing of lay piety in the later fifteenth and first half of the sixteenth century. It thus sheds new light on the coming of the Protestant Reformation, as well as revealing the richness of the world of medieval Scottish religious imagery.
