    Abstract

    This chapter attempts to situate the moral panic around sectarianism in Scotland in wider relations of social power. Sectarianism valorizes symbolic distinction and separation as prohibitions against social and ideological promiscuity and contamination between established and outsider groups (Weber, 1946). Sectarianism in this sense has been eroded by widening circles of identification in Scotland. Sectarianism today takes the form of a civilising offensive mobilised by the legitimate sources of symbolic nomination to regulate and discipline outsiders defined by a chronic maladaptation to the civilising canopy of the national habitus in Scotland.
