"Stained Glass in Catholic Philadelphia tells the remarkable story of the thousands of stained-glass windows - made in America, England, France, and Germany - in the more than 400 churches, chapels, and institutions of the five-county Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Since 1997 more than 450 sites have been visited to document the archdiocese's windows by photographing them. This process resulted in the creation of a photo archive of over 50,000 images. Using this archive as a foundation, a team of scholars - from a variety of institutions and with specialties in medieval studies, architectural and social history, Christian iconography, decorative and liturgical arts, the craft, creative reuse, and historic preservation of stained glass - was assembled to study these windows. The result is this profusely illustrated book of original research that makes accessible a significant and highly visible, but neglected, aspect of our ecclesial, national, and regional cultural heritage."--BOOK JACKET.

Stained glass can be thought of as a decorative adjunct to architecture or as fine art productive of a wide variety of rich and deep experiences in the beholder. Although both aspects are covered in this book, it is glass as fine art that concerns the author - from the unique wondrous beauty of the windows of Europe's great cathedrals to the much later masterpieces of Tiffany, LaFarge and today's artists. Treating the subject chronologically, he explores the chronological background to each period in order to establish the motivation of the society and the intentions of the artists who caused a particular kind of stained glass to come into being. There are enquiries into the changing meaning of colour, the influence of other contemporary arts (architecture, painting, tapestry, ceramics, illuminated manuscripts), the origin of glass and the manner in which, in early times, ideas travelled from one region to another. There are also accounts of how stained glass windows are made and descriptive analyses of the beauty of individual works. Patrick Reyntiens considers late developments in the 20th century. Among these is the rise of the studio panel of stained glass or glass emancipated from the constraints of modern architecture, of which he himself is a practitioner.
