This strand of three sessions will examine various aspects of Anglo-Scottish relations from the 13th to the 16th centuries, discussing how interactions between Englishmen and Scots, and their perceptions of each other, were shaped by a period of peaceful co-existence followed by intermittent but persistent hostilities. This first session will cover various religious and ecclesiastical aspects of Anglo-Scottish conflict, including the relationship between war, religion, and the landscape; the ecclesiastical and diplomatic repercussions of the attempts to impose an English candidate on the bishopric of St Andrews; and Scottish hagiography as a source for Anglo-Scottish warfare.
