Abstract

Despite persistent debate about the status and character of Scotland’s Catholic community the question of how distinctive – if at all – Scotland’s Catholics are within a wider British Catholicism is seldom asked. Utilising the newly released Catholics in Britain Survey of 2019 this short article sketches out some comparative evidence on Catholic religiosity, moral values, family, and personal networks. It concludes that Scotland’s Catholicism is closely similar, in terms of such measures, to a wider British Catholic community.
