Welcome to the July issue. This month’s feature details the recreation of medieval heraldic and grisaille glazing for display in an impressive new exhibition at Battle Abbey, whilst our book review focuses on an important new contribution to the historiography of Thomas Becket, famed among stained glass scholars as the proud prelate whose ‘glassy bones’ were rattled down from the windows of Canterbury cathedral by overzealous Parliamentary forces in the 1640s. In news, York Minster is celebrated for both the 50th Anniversary of York Glaziers Trust and also a new fundraising partnership to secure the future of the cathedral’s famous stained glass windows; a range of upcoming lectures are also flagged.
