Scottish Catholic Historical Association 

The Scottish Catholic Historical Association was founded in 1950 by a group of clergy and laity who wished to place Scottish Catholic history in the mainstream of historical research. Conferences, lectures, publications and the invaluable journal of the association - The Innes Review - have successfully achieved this goal set out over 65 years ago.

Registration can also be made offline, by downloading a registration form and sending a cheque directly to the Association Treasurer.
