The best stained glass windows are masterpieces of colour and narrative. They tell Biblical and didactic tales, display images of saints and armorial crests, memorialise the dead and enhance the devotional ambience of England's churches and cathedrals. Roger Rosewell here traces the history of stained glass from the rare extant Anglo-Saxon works through to some major examples from the last fifty years, exploring the various styles and contexts and affording the reader fascinating insights into how medieval people 'saw' stained glass. Illustrated with a hundred breathtaking photographs and a helpful gazetteer of outstanding examples, this book is indispensable reading for anyone interested in church or art history.
