Stained Glass from Welsh Churches


This blog was started in the summer of 2014 as a way of documenting the reaction to the publication of my book Stained Glass from Welsh Churches, which gave the blog its title, and to provide some more information about it.

Now that this starting point has receded into the past, I have broadened the nature of the posts, while retaining a focus on the study of stained glass. This is a subject which has increasingly, but by no means entirely, preoccupied me since about 2005–6.

I have been working on subsequent smaller publications (published as Sulien Books) since the appearance of Stained Glass from Welsh Churches, and this blog features and augments them. I have also sometimes offered some comments on other new publications of relevance to the study of stained glass in Wales.

My second book published by Y Lolfa, Depicting St David, was released in the days leading up to St Davids Day, 2020. The reviews section above (under ‘Book’) will include any interesting issues that come up as reviews appear. I hope to publish my next major book, Welsh Saints from Welsh Churches, in 2022.

Soon after its launch in 2014, this blog was selected for inclusion in the UK Web Archive ‘as an important part of Wales’ documentary heritage.’
