A magnificent achievement - Robert Hardy, CBE. The 28 medieval stained glass windows of St Mary's Church in Fairford, Gloucestershire, form the finest collection of stained glass in Europe and are known throughout the world. St Mary's is a magnificent church, built towards the end of the 15th century by wool merchant John Tame. The windows were installed in 1509 after painstaking work by their craftsmen and tell the story of the Christian faith from Creation to Last Judgement. From 1984, the windows have been gradually restored, after being damaged by years of weathering and corrosion. For the first time in just over 300 years the set of windows is complete. It is therefore timely to publish, for the first time in paperback, the story of Fairford's windows. This book, first published as "Life, Death and Art: The Medieval Stained Glass of Fairford Parish Church," studies the medieval stained glazing scheme in the context of the economic, religious and artistic life of late medieval England. Expert contributors discuss all aspects of the windows, from the building and decoration of the church, to the working methods of the glaziers, the glass's history and construction, and its subject matter and iconography. Beautifully illustrated in both colour and b/w, "Fairford Parish Church" also discusses the survival of the glass, and the methods of its restoration.

Seven substantial essays and a CD-ROM examine the only full medieval glazing scheme in Britain to survive the Reformation and the Puritan iconoclasm of the 17th century. They cover the context, the surrounding wool-producing Cotswalds, the church, the windows, fables and facts, the stained glass artists and their craft, and conservation and restoration. Appendices present wills of the leading Tame family and poems about the windows, and discuss photographing them, and sources of information about stained glass. The CD-ROM contains video clips, narration, music, graphics, and text. The complete set of windows and details are shown in 35 color plates and many black-and-white photographs.

Royal Priesthood In The English Reformation

Royal Priesthood in the English Reformation assesses the understandings of the Christian doctrine of royal priesthood, long considered one of the three major Reformation teachings, as held by an array of royal, clerical, and popular theologians during the English Reformation. Historians and theologians often present the doctrine according to more recent debates rather than the contextual understandings manifested by the historical figures under consideration. Beginning with a radical reevaluation of John Wyclif and an incisive survey of late medieval accounts, the book challenges the predominant presentation of the doctrine of royal priesthood as primarily individualistic and anticlerical, in the process clarifying these other concepts. It also demonstrates that the late medieval period located more religious authority within the monarchy than is typically appreciated. After the revolutionary use of the doctrine by Martin Luther in early modern Germany, it was wielded variously between and within diverse English royal, clerical, and lay factions under Henry VIII and Edward VI, yet the Old and New Testament passages behind the doctrine were definitely construed in a monarchical direction. With Thomas Cranmer, the English evangelical presentation of the universal priesthood largely received its enduring official shape, but challenges came from within the English magisterium as well as from both radical and conservative religious thinkers. Under the sacred Tudor queens, who subtly and successfully maintained their own sacred authority, the various doctrinal positions hardened into a range of early modern forms with surprising permutations.
