Abstract:
The following is an attempt to trace the spiritual awakening which affected the North-east of Scotland in the early nineteenth century. The implications of this awakening, and the Disruption which followed are investigated. The area involved in the study is that of the Synod of Aberdeen, but excluding the City of Aberdeen, which would be a fit subject of investigation on its own. Thus parts of three co-unties are included: Aberdeen, Banff and Kincardine. The expression 'North-east' has been selected because it is familiar and convenient. If we talk of 'the men of the North-east', we are not likely to be misunderstood, but 'the men of the Synod of Aberdeen', who are they The expression also allows a little latitude in occasionally glancing at places just over the border of the Synod, notably Strathbogie. Events took place there which markedly affected life within the Synod, for neither events ecclesiastical nor-national stop short at Synod boundaries.
