Liturgical interpretation is the analysis of public worship using the methods of patristic and medieval scriptural exegesis. It was a central part of Scottish religious culture and education before 1560 and popular among clerics committed to Catholic Reform. Wishart and Knox’s Reformed critique of Catholic ceremonial made liturgical interpretation an important part of mid-sixteenth-century debate. While Protestant and Catholic liturgy and theology differed greatly, both sides used the same method to interpret their worship and this, meaning that the Reformation divide in Scotland was not as wide as the protagonists claimed, has historical and ecumenical implications.
