This strand of four sessions will examine various aspects of Anglo-Scottish relations from the 13th to the 16th centuries and beyond. This fourth session will look at aspects of religious interchange, examining: support for royal pregnancies and childbirth as Anglo-Scottish royal diplomacy in the thirteenth century; the impact of the Council of Florence on religion and justice in England and Scotland; and how the medieval English blood-libel 'Hugh of Lincoln' changed through the centuries, with the 18th-century Scottish ballad restaging it to express satire or criticism against the ruling classes or religions.
