Stained Glass in Wales | Gwydr Lliw yng Nghymru

About the Catalogue


Window by Tim Lewis, Church of St Luke, Cwmdare
The material found in the catalogue includes the fruits of two research projects that have made this collection of images possible. The Imaging the Bible in Wales Project (2005-8) researched and recorded biblical art from Wales from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and much of this material was from places of worship in Wales. The project was funded by the AHRC and run by the Department of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Wales, Lampeter (now University of Wales Trinity St David).

For a broader selection of biblical art from Wales, please visit the Imaging the Bible in Wales Database.

Subsequently the Stained Glass in Wales Project (2009-11) added many more examples and expanded the coverage of contemporary glass, as well as medieval examples. This was initially funded by the University of Wales Welsh Industries Fund and based at the University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies. Subsequent funding for additional material has generously been provided by the Pilgrim Trust, the Garfield Weston Foundation, the Friends of Friendless Churches and the Glaziers' Trust. Further windows and more photography will continue to be added to the catalogue during 2012.

For a fuller description of the origin of the project and an overview of the contents of the Catalogue see the Feature in the February 2012 issue of Vidimus.
