An insightful and provocative guest editorial by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, is followed by in-depth studies of medieval stained glass: John Thornton at St Mary's Hall, Coventry and Bishop Richard Fox of Winchester’s influence on early 16th-century stained glass in England. Superb research on the invention and development of the Victorian memorial stained glass window, and on the ways artists John Piper and Pat Lipksy looked at stained glass. Fiona MacCarthy presents a cautionary tale for culture in the UK reporting on threats to the William Morris Gallery in her piece on William Morris, Burne-Jones and the politics of art. Alfred Fisher FMGP responds to the newly issued CVMA Guidelines for the conservation of stained glass. Obituaries are included for John Hayward FMGP, Sadie McLellan and Albinas Elskus, plus 18 book reviews, auction room surprises and much more.
