dc.description.abstract"The Great Cause of Scotland" is not an occurrence that has lent itself to the imagination like the Scottish Wars of Independence, the Union of the Crowns or the plight of Mary Stewart, Queen of Scots. Perhaps this lack of interest stems from the enormous complexities of the case, or possibly from the nature of the case itself which was a gradual culmination of events rather than a single identifiable episode. Whatever the reason, the result has been a relative lassitude toward a fascinating period. Due to the complete failure of the Canmore dynasty, close scrutiny was applied to feudal laws of succession, the status of kingdoms within the feudal system in general, and the relationship of the Scottish kingdom in particular. The results of the Great Cause give us a clearer picture of medieval thought in practice, for if the situation had not arisen, this picture may have remained vague conjecture.en_US
