ABSTRACT
The article discusses various aspects of center-periphery relations, or the relationship between a central government and its peripheral regions, between the Scottish government and the Scottish Highlands in the 17th century, primarily focusing on the proliferation of the Covenanting (Scottish Presbyterian) movement in the region. The author analyzes how Covenanter authorities understood the center-periphery issue through notions of local political autonomy, the nature of Scottish government, the presence of Highlands elites in the government, and Covenanting versus Royalist ideology in the region.
