The Edinburgh Scriptorium began meeting in April 2019 at the Carrubbers Christian Centre on the Royal Mile. While initially it was composed of School of Divinity students from the University of Edinburgh, it has since attracted attention from other Schools within the University, and also students from Edinburgh Theological Seminary and Heriot-Watt University.

 

Members would come together from a diverse range of Christian and other faith backgrounds (including none), and viewed the Scriptorium as a haven in which they could both do their academic work and gather in Christian fellowship. In Fall 2019, the Scriptorium began meeting three times per week, with the daily liturgies composed by various members, each liturgy reflecting both the composer's denominational background and the consistent core of Scriptorium prayers and aims.

Upon the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, full Scriptorium meetings were suspended, though Edinburgh members continued to hold weekly prayer meetings throughout 2020. In February 2021, the Edinburgh Scriptorium teamed up with the St. Andrews Scriptorium to host a weekly, virtual Scriptorium on Zoom, which is still ongoing.
