I could use a little help.

Does anybody know what the most important church feast days were in 12th century Scotland?

Thanks.

You'll need to do a bit more research, but look for Scottish Books or Hours and Scottish Psalters. 12th century is a little early for even psalters to be common, but you'll find some.

They'll contain a calendar, with feast days listed. But the Red Letter days, the most important feasts, are generally those like Easter or the major saint's feasts.
