Unmarried pregnant women - and the men who caused their pregnancies - were targeted by Scottish church courts determined to maintain a godly society.
Sin in the City provides unique glimpses into the thoughts, feelings and actions of ordinary men and women living in the Scottish cities of Aberdeen, Glasgow, Dundee and Edinburgh, where records are even richer than their rural counterparts.

Synopsis:

Investigating the statement that "Scotland is the classic country for illegitimacy" (Peter Laslett), this book presents the authors' findings about the nature of Scottish society during a period of economic and social change. The companion volume to "Girls in Trouble", this book continues here through life in the Scottish urban centres of Edinburgh, including its satellites of Canongate and Leith, Glasgow, Dundee, and Aberdeen.
