Williams KJ (2021) Antiquaries in Pre-Reformation Scotland. In: A Companion to Renaissance Antiquarianism. Leiden: Brill.
First paragraph: Recent scholarship has dramatically redrawn the period boundaries which traditionally characterized Scottish history. Instead of the pre-Reformation Middle Ages suddenly blossoming into Reformed early modernity in 1560 as had been the dominant paradigm for much of the twentieth century, a new generation of scholars has seen the steady growth of a Scottish Renaissance culture beginning in the late fifteenth century and a protracted period of reform, both Catholic and Protestant, which extended over much of the sixteenth.
