The Declaration of Arbroath is one of the most remarkable documents to have been produced in medieval Europe. Quoted by many yet understood by few, its historical significance has almost been overtaken by its mythic status. Since 1998 the US Senate has claimed that the American Declaration of Independence is modeled on this inspirational document, and April 6 -- the day in 1320 on which over 40 named nobles, barons, freeholders and the community of the realm of Scotland petitioned the Pope 'to admonish and exhort the king of the English to leave in peace us Scots' -- is celebrated as a day of national significance throughout America, especially by those of Scottish descent. This book explores the origins of the Declaration and the ideas upon which it drew and traces its role as a legendary icon both in Scotland and beyond. 180 page paperback.
