The Archbishops of Glasgow were one of the most important clerics in the medieval Scottish Church. The bishopric appears to date to the early 12th century, and the office of Archbishop existed from the elevation of the see to archiepiscopal status in 1492, until the Scottish Reformation, and even then continued in a nominal form, although no longer as part of the western Church. The Archbishopric of Glasgow was resurrected by the Papacy in the 19th century.
