Professor Emeritus Donald E. Meek is a native of Tiree, Inner Hebrides. A graduate of the Universities of Glasgow (MA, PhD, DLitt) and Cambridge (MA, LittD), he worked at the Universities of Glasgow (Assistant Editor, Historical Dictionary of Scottish Gaelic, 1973-79), Edinburgh (Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and Reader in Celtic, 1979-92, and Professor of Scottish and Gaelic Studies, 2003-2008) and Aberdeen (Professor of Celtic, 1993-2002). He has published many articles and books, concerned mainly with Medieval and Modern Gaelic literature, and also with the history of the Christian faith in the Scottish Highlands and other ‘Celtic’ areas of the British Isles.
With characteristic humour, he chose the above photograph of himself!
While this annual lecture is designed to highlight the role of ETS in promoting the study of Scottish Church History and Theology at undergraduate level, it is also part of our promotion of the Postgraduate Taught Masters in Scottish Church History and Theology.
Please come along and feel free to invite interested friends to this event.
