UK – Course: Seventeeth-Century Stained Glass

Oxford on 11th -13th May 2012

This is a weekend school at Rewley House, Oxford, organised by the Department for Further Education, University of Oxford in association with the Ecclesiological Society. The first half of the seventeenth century saw a significant revival of glass-painting, related to new thinking concerning the appropriate way to adorn a church, in a desire to create the ‘beauty of holiness’. The glass is vivid and full of energy, and extraordinary for the way it was pushing the boundaries of religious art at the time.
