He is nor Here...": First World memorial stained glass and the fragile art of
Dr Neil Moat, Secretary of the Glazier's Trust
Date: Wednesday 24 September, 7.30pm
Venue: Ely Cathedral
The UK suffered over three million casualties in the First World War alone, and stained glass memorial windows were a popular form of commemorating the dead. It is estimated that more than 2000 stained glass windows were installed and dedicated to individuals, families, and regiments who lost their lives during the First World War. These windows vary in both style and content and all are of great historic significance.
In this lecture, held in the centenary year of the outbreak of the First World War, Dr Neil Moat will explore the ways in which stained glass windows were used to commemorate and remember the fallen.
Neil Moat is an experienced historian and lecturer on Victorian and Arts and Crafts churches, stained glass and decorative arts in the North-East of England. He worked for English Heritage (North-East) for seventeen years, and has served on the Diocesan Advisory Committees for the Care of Churches (DACs) for both the (Anglican) dioceses of Newcastle and Durham, and more recently on the Historic Churches Committee (HCC) for the (Roman Catholic) Diocese of Hexham & Newcastle. Latterly, he has joined the Church Buildings Council (the body that nationally oversees the Anglican DACs), and its associated Stained Glass Conservation subcommittee and Statutory Advisory committee (for Closed and Closing Churches). He is also the current Secretary of the Glazierís Trust.
Tickets £8 including refreshments
