The religious cultures of both male and female members of the Scottish nobility are examined. While some members of this class began to exercise a greater interest in religion during the nineteenth century, their impact upon Episcopalians was ambiguous. As patrons, largely interested in local influence or exercising a genuine religious conviction, their wealth and status could be enabling in the development of local and even national infrastructure for an impoverished Episcopal Church. However, that power could also become divisive when it came into conflict with the religious allegiances and traditions of naïve Scottish Episcopalians.
