While many think that the Episcopal Church came from the Church of England, it was actually Scottish Episcopalians, many of them ardent Jacobites, supporters of the exiled Stuart. The Scottish Episcopal Church is diverse in its tradition, outlook and culture.

It's called "common prayer" because we all pray it together, around the world. It is on this tradition that further liturgical development occurred, for example the Scottish Liturgy of and the various prayer books of the Episcopal Church of the United States of America, and where the doctrine of a real, yet spiritual presence of Christ in the Eucharist and a doctrine of Eucharistic sacrifice, based on moderate.

The Scottish Episcopal Church is the representative of the Anglican Communion in Scotland. It is the result of a history in the Scottish Church of struggles throughout the 16th and 17th centuries between congregational and episcopal forms of liturgy and government.

Churches following this tradition are typically characterized by 1) more formal worship patterns and 2) more hierarchy in leadership. More formal worship patterns: they often use a lectionary and a worship manual (e.g., the Catholic Missal, Anglican Book of Common Prayer, etc.).
