2019 ISBN 13 978 0 9568762 9 4 268 pages, 238 illustrations, most in colour and many large scale

Martin Harrison FSA is the Guest Editor of this richly illustrated and expanded Special Issue devoted to a ground-breaking overview of Medievalism Studies. With an extensive range of stained glass from the Middle Ages to the Gothic Revival, new research explores the history of – and evolving approaches to – the medieval tradition. Harrison introduces articles on the early evidence of silver stain at York Minster; a pioneering survey of Saffron Walden’s glaziers active in the fifteenth century; the recent conservation of important late-medieval glass at Winchester Cathedral; pre-1700 heraldic glass in the county of Essex; Georgian ambitions to ‘surpass’ medieval art with enamel-painted glazing at Norwich Cathedral; some current theories of the phenomenon of vitreous iconoclasm; a detailed examination of the cultural and political impact of 17th-century domestic windows brought from France to Quebec; the transition to medievalism in English stained glass in the early 19th century; contemporary documentation of stained glass restoration and repair across Great Britain by Victorian architects and craftsmen; and the influence of Late-Gothic and Renaissance glass on the work of Burlison & Grylls in the Victorian era.

Contemporary Practice showcases the Grange Gallery exhibition 'Inspired by Burne-Jones', along with stained glass shown at the British Glass Biennale 2019 and Prizes and Awards given by the Worshipful Company of Glaziers. Recent commissions by BSMGP Fellows and Associates are illustrated and described in the New Work Portfolio. Nine in-depth book reviews are followed by obituaries and appreciations for Christine Boyce AMGP and Dr David Martlew Hon FSGT.
