The newly-cleaned stained glass of Canterbury Cathedral in Kent, England is a revelation - the vibrant colour and breathtaking detail are newly visible to today's visitors. The finest of this glass will be reproduced within a lavishly designed book to be enjoyed by tourists and general readers alike. In this book, Michael Michael has the pleasure of selecting the most beautiful and important pieces of glass on display at the Cathedral. His text sets these within the context of the biblical stories they depict. Communicating his passion for the glass and his understanding of its art and historical context, this book will appeal to non-specialists who are interested in the meanings behind single images and narrative sequences of glass. An additional chapter written by Sebastian Strobl outlines the fascinating history of changing methods of restoration and conservation, as well as the work carried out today by the Cathedral's expert team.

This long-overdue volume showcases the Museum's outstanding stained and painted glass - a peerless collection ranging in date from c. 1140 to 1540 and with important examples from England, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, The Netherlands and Italy. The stained glass collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum is the largest in the world, making it possible to chart the development of the art in detail from the middle of the twelfth century to about 1550. One hundred colour plates, and selected details, show the collection to full advantage, while commentaries on each of the pieces will reconstruct the original context of the panels, explain the imagery and give details of further reading thus also providing an indispensable introduction to the subject. The text will touch on the techniques of stained glass, the major centres and monuments and the themes depicted in the pieces illustrated. Taken together, images and text illuminate a golden age of stained glass production, resulting in a beautiful book which will complement the major exhibition of Gothic art opening at the V&A in Autumn 2003.

This handsome two-part set is the first fully illustrated study of one of the most substantial collections of medieval stained glass in England. The glass from the east end of Wells Cathedral (rebuilt by a thriving clerical community between 1320 and 1340) includes the five brilliantlycoloured windows of the choir clerestory, with its seven-light Jesse east window, and glass from the famous polygonal Lady Chapel. There are also remains from the Chapter House, Library, Vicars' Close and the houses of the cathedral Chapter members.Besides describing and illustrating each panel, the volume has introductions to each part of the building or cathedral complex. These sections reconstruct what is known of the original glazing and its history, set it within the history of the buildings, their uses and issues of patronage, and revealmany new discoveries. An introduction places the findings within the wider context of recent international stained glass studies and late medieval art history.

Between the Celtic tribe of the Iron Age—the Cantiaci—and the twenty-first-century inhabitants of Canterbury, three millenia stand during which the city has enjoyed unparalleled fame, particularly since it became the religious heart of the country in AD 597. While ambling through the streets of modern Canterbury, one is able to—if careful enough to do so—get the feel of the medieval city. There must be reasons for that enduring impact of the past and it might be because of the overwhelming wealth of people who have left their mark as well as events of momentous importance that took place there. Canterbury: A Medieval City will take the reader on a trip through time, space and history, as well as literature. It will enable him to apprehend the magnitude of the history of the place and the reasons why Canterbury has become the magnet it is nowadays for people from all over the world, the “mecca for tourists” as it is advertised on some websites. While illustrious figures are dealt with in the articles contained in the book, such as Saint Augustine, Thomas Becket, and Geoffrey Chaucer—who account for the renown of the place and have indeed helped to shape national identity—it is also possible to catch a glimpse of the less notorious personalities and facts that have also worked to give Canterbury its deeply ingrained identity: people like priors, as well as the many different ways which the city functioned.

"From the time of the foundation of its cathedral in 597, Canterbury has been the epicentre of Britain's ecclesiastical history, and an exceptionally important centre for architectural and visual innovation. Focusing especially but not exclusively on Christ Church cathedral, this legacy is explored in seventeen essays concerned with Canterbury's art, architecture and archaeology between the early Anglo-Saxon period and the close of the middle ages. Papers consider the relationship between between architectural setting and liturgical practice, and between stationary and movable fittings, while fresh insights are offered into the aesthetic, spiritual, and pragmatic considerations that shaped the fabric of Christ Church and St Augustine's abbey, alongside critical reflections on Canterbury's historiography and relationship to the wider world. Taken together, these studies demonstrate the richness of the surviving material, and its enduring ability to raise new questions.
