North British Review

The North British Review was a Scottish periodical. It was founded in 1844 to act as the organ of the new Free Church of Scotland, the first editor being David Welsh.[1] It was published until 1871;[2] in the last few years of its existence it had a liberal Catholic editorial policy.[3]

Under Lord Acton's influence the Review took on a different character, with Aurelio Buddeus and Constantin Frantz writing on European affairs. Its editorial line rose above nationalistic politics, and was strongly opposed to Otto von Bismarck.[4]
