Jennifer McHughPhD student, Associate Lecturer
My PhD project explores the relationship between the Crown and ecclesiastics in fourteenth-century Scotland, with a particular focus on the reigns of David II (1329-1371) and Edward Balliol (1332-1356). My interests include the impact of warfare and violence on religious communities, political allegiance and identity, and pre-modern understandings of the nation.
The political allegiances and identities of the Scottish Clergy between 1329 and 1371.
