DESCRIPTION

 

 

Institutional context

 

The Historic Archives of the Scottish Catholic Archives predominantly relate to the Catholic Church prior to the restoration of the Scottish Catholic Hierarchy in 1878.

The collection contains material of regional, national and international significance and provides evidence of the survival of Catholicism both in Scotland and abroad through the archives of its missions, seminaries and colleges.

There are also extensive collections relating to prominent Catholic families, complementing the important family and estate papers held by the Special Collections Centre
