Editorial Introduction SPCP has two objectives. It will research the Scottish Privy Council, one of the most important institutional branches of Scottish government in the early modern period, focusing on the period from the Revolution of 1689 to the Union of 1707. Such themes are reflected in the targeted research of the team: the Council’s institutional history, linkages to other national and local institutions, judicial activities and the body’s social and political significance in the period.
