It contains photographs and details of all the windows to be seen in the Cathedral, together with maps and historical background. This book is a long overdue record of a very unique collection of stained glass which dates from medieval times to the new millennium.
In addition to its other assets - architecture, rich history and the affection in which it is held by Glasgow's citizens – Glasgow Cathedral contains one of the finest collections of stained glass, much of it by Scottish artists, to be seen in the UK. In addition it has examples of medieval glass, and some remnants of the Victorian glass with which it was filled in the 19th century. Here, under one roof, can be seen examples of stained glass from its earliest forms to its most recent. This is an experience not to be missed. This book takes you on a guided tour of all the glass and includes details of the Donors and Artists.
We are very sorry to pass on the news that our good friend and tireless worker on the Cathedral archives, Iain Macnair, passed away recently.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.https://www.heraldscotland.com/announcements/deaths/deaths/18401977.Iain_Macnair/
