Bywgraffiad Awdur:
Dr Martin Crampin is a Research Fellow at the University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies in Aberystwyth, with a particular expertise in the study of ecclesiastical art. He is also an acclaimed artist and photographer, and the author of Stained Glass from Welsh Churches (Y Lolfa, 2014) as well as a series of studies on individual churches.
Gwybodaeth Bellach:
Although belonging to a distant medieval past, Wales still vigorously celebrates St David every 1 March, and he remains very much part of the Welsh national consciousness. Hundreds of images of David can be found in the nation’s churches, mainly in the form of nineteenth- and twentieth-century stained glass and sculpture. This book introduces a selection, contextualising the imagery in relation to the artists and studios that made them, local history and stories associated with St David.
In some cases the churches in which images in this book were photographed have now closed. Artworks from some of them have found new homes elsewhere, but a growing number face an uncertain future. This book aims to foster a better appreciation of these depictions of St David, and encourage more visitors to go and seek out these images of Wales' patron saint.
Richly illustrated in full colour throughout, packed with dozens of the author's striking photographs.
