The Jacobite underground in the early eighteenth century
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

The Enterprise of Scotland was specifically designed to serve the ends of the Scots Jacobite movement. The first decade of the eighteenth century was one of unusual religious peace within the Jacobite movement. This chapter looks at the social and political structure of Jacobitism and Scotland. The image of true royalty carefully maintained at the court of the exiled Stuarts confirmed the Jacobite communities of the British Isles in their belief that they were loyal soldiers in a righteous cause. The Jacobite court in exile and its associated European Jacobite diaspora were safe from the day-to-day hostility of the English/British state. The English Jacobites came into the new reign in the ascendant in terms of Jacobite politics. England and Scotland were in the region of 98 per cent Protestant, and for the great majority of English and Scots Protestants to be a Protestant was to abhor Catholicism.
