Introduction

In many instances it is difficult to be sure whether the cult of St John the Evangelist, or John the Baptist is present: both had strong cults in the middle ages, John the Baptist particularly in the burghs, such as Perth (St John's Town). Only where the cult is certain have we identified a specific St John. Note also, St John of Dunkeld. Whilst it is unlikely that any of our current commemorations relate specifically to him, his presence may have boosted the general culting of Ss called John in the diocese of Dunkeld.
