The Declaration of Arbroath is one of the most remarkable documents from medieval Scotland and has become an historical icon: a masterpiece of political rhetoric, it appeals to the Pope for protection against the English. This first book-length study of the Declaration's origins, and of the ideas on which it drew, explores claims that it was the model for the American Declaration of Independence.
