ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study of the ecclesiastical response to the cattle plague in the mid-1860s in Great Britain, particularly Scotland. The importation of diseased cattle from Estonia in 1865 caused the outbreak of rinderpest. An indication of the early reaction of the Church of England to the epizootic is a special prayer approved by Queen Victoria. The tendency to rely on religious tradition during the plague is partly attributed to fear. A comparison between ecclesiastical reactions to cattle disease in the 21st century and mid-1860s is offered.
