Henry R SeftonThis brief opening article provides a very concise view of the ecclesiastical Scotland into which James Cooper was born, no small task when one considers how divided a land it was. This also serves to present him in his own particular setting. Through the series of Cooper’s perceptive but sometimes quite acerbic views the reader is enabled to realize something of the passionate nature of the man whether for history, for reform, for ecclesiology, or for church architecture.
