New Historical Research article: the parliaments of James VI

by

Using draft legislation from the period 1573–1621, Alan MacDonald’s new article reconstructs the Scottish parliamentary process under James VI. It examines how proposals reached parliament, how they were amended and approved in committee and before the full house, and what was done with the drafts after a parliamentary session. It argues against the traditional view of an impotent assembly and deepens our understanding of how the early modern Scottish parliament functioned.
