Summary

Based on church and state records from the burgh of Aberdeen, this study explores the deeper social meaning behind petty crime during the Reformation. Falconer argues that an analysis of both criminal behaviour and law enforcement provides a unique view into the workings of an early modern urban Scottish community. Examining the motivation behind these acts of violence reveals power struggles, social and familial hierarchies and the concept of belonging.
