Adam of Dryburgh
Adam of Dryburgh,whose life and writings are here discussed,is one of the few religious writers of mediaeval Scotland to have commanded an audience outside his native land. The list of his extant writings has slowly grown,and may yet increase further. The writer of this thesis is particularly indebted to two predecessors in the same field Dr N.J.Weyns of Tongerloo,who has written on Adam's life as a White Canon,and Miss E. Margaret Thompson, who has written on his time as a Carthusian. This study was interrupted by an illness during which a numbers of references to sources were lost.
