Bishop of Glasgow

Pious Bishop


Jocelin is a deeply pious individual and self proclaimed ‘Defender of the Faith.’ His direct antagonism to the authority of York’s power in Scotland is consistently expressed. Jocelin is tall and slim; as dedicated to diet and fasting as he is to his role of Bishop. He wears the ceremonial garb of the Catholic Church as often as possible in his belief that the Church brings hope and light to the general populace.


Jocelin of Glasgow ascended to Bishopric of Glasgow in 1174. Jocelin hails from an Anglo-Norman background with strong French connections involved in his political rise to fame . In the aftermath of 1174, he obtained a Papal Bull which declared the see of Glasgow to be a “special daughter” of the Roman Patriarchate.
