The stained glass windows of England's cathedrals and churches are masterpieces of colour and storytelling, and for a thousand years they have brought meaning and beauty to worshippers and visitors alike. This book traces the history of stained glass from its Anglo-Saxon origins until the present day, explaining how some of Europe's greatest artists have created these unique 'paintings with light'. It also offers fascinating insights into how medieval people 'saw' stained glass. A hundred beautiful photographs make this book indispensable reading for anyone interested in church or art history and a helpful gazetteer lists where to see more than 500 outstanding windows.
