Abstract

In the past, land agitations have had a clear spiritual and theological dimension. The morality of ownership over land itself is often questioned. Many see land as a community resource, and community ownership is an emergent ‘model’ of land tenure, both in word and in practice. This project on the role of spirituality and theology in Scotland’s modern land reform is linked to research into the spirituality of community regeneration, supported by WWF International in Geneva. The findings show that for contemporary Scottish land reformers spiritual and theological dimensions are very important. Keywords Community empowerment, development, land reform, Scotland, spirituality This research project on the role of spirituality and theology in Scotland’s modern land reform is part of a co-operation between the Centre for Human Ecology, Strathclyde University in Glasgow, Scotland, and International Development Studies at Wageningen University in the Netherlands. It is linked to research into the spirituality of community regeneration, supported by WWF International in Geneva. The project is a study on the culture of an important rural movement that is unique in Europe. In local struggles with their landlords communities such as those on Eigg, in Assynt, and on Gigha have gained control over their
