Summary: Stained glass is one of the most important but least-known of medieval arts, combining monumental painting with architecture. Drawing on the best recent research, Stained Class in England during the Middle Ages is a comprehensive survey of the art of producing stained glass windows. The book considers stained glass in relation to architecture and other arts and has detailed analyses not only of all the major monuments, like Canterbury Cathedral, York Minster and King's College Chapel Cambridge, but also draws attention to many lesser known masterpieces in parish churches. Professor Marks investigates the social and economic background of stained glass production, describing workshop organisation and practice, prices and the role of patrons. He outlines the important contribution made by stained glass to our knowledge of medieval religious beliefs and cults. Stained glass attracted some of the most outstanding craftsmen of the day. Making a plea for the need to preserve this fragile medium, the book shows how stained glass was often at the forefront of artistic innovation in English medieval art. Codice inventario libreria
