In order to reflect the fact that none of the reformed monastic orders originated in Normandy, the term 'Anglo-French' is preferred to the more popular 'Anglo-Norman' when describing in general the continental cultural mores and practices introduced into Scotland during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries by the Canmore kings and incoming settlers. The term 'Anglo-French' is also used as a simplified shorthand description for the incomers themselves, unless a particular individual, family or community is discussed, in which case their ethnic origin is specified, e.g. Breton, Fleming, etc. The term 'Gaelic Church' is used to describe the existing Church encountered by twelfth-century reformers in areas where the Gaels were culturally dominant, e.g. Alba, Galloway and Strathclyde. This was the descendant of the Church established throughout northern Britain by Irish missionaries, such as Colum Cille. The author's reasons for preferring this term to the more popular 'Celtic Church' are given in K. Veitch, 'The Columban Church in Northern Britain, AD664-717: a re-assessment', PSAS, (1998). Similarly, the term 'Northumbrian Church' is used for the existing Church of mixed Anglo-Saxon and Gaelic provenance in Lothian and Tevitodale.
