Professor Emeritus Donald Meek gave the 2019 Annual ETS lecture in Scottish Church History and Theology on March 7, 2019 to a very well attended Presbytery Hall. His address was entitled “The Birth of Highland Evangelicalism: Dugald Buchanan (1716-68), the Gaelic New Testament (1767), and the Hymns of Isaac Watts”.
Professor Emeritus Donald E. Meek is a native of Tiree, Inner Hebrides. A graduate of the Universities of Glasgow (MA, PhD, DLitt) and Cambridge (MA, LittD), he worked at the Universities of Glasgow (Assistant Editor, Historical Dictionary of Scottish Gaelic, 1973-79), Edinburgh (Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and Reader in Celtic, 1979-92, and Professor of Scottish and Gaelic Studies, 2003-2008) and Aberdeen (Professor of Celtic, 1993-2002). He has published many articles and books, concerned mainly with Medieval and Modern Gaelic literature, and also with the history of the Christian faith in the Scottish Highlands and other ‘Celtic’ areas of the British Isles.
While this annual lecture is designed to highlight the role of ETS in promoting the study of Scottish Church History and Theology at undergraduate level, it is also part of our promotion of the Postgraduate Taught Masters in Scottish Church History and Theology.
