STAINED GLASS OF CANTERBURY CATHEDRAL


Scala Publishers, £25; 1-85759-339-1

The story of Jonah and the Whale, depicted here in a window in Canterbury Cathedral, was seen in the Middle Ages as a “type” of the entombment. Similarly, Jonah’s release from the belly of the fish was seen as a symbol of the resurrection.  which celebrates and explains the newly cleaned windows and their narrative sequences, in this colourful and beautifully produced book. Sebastian Strobl, who is head of stained-glass conservation at Canterbury, writes a chapter about the history of conservation methods, as well as the work done by the cathedral’s team
