Lecture - 'The Stained-Glass of Margaret Agnes Rope'


Dr Claire Fitzgerald of Warwick University is giving a free lecture inside Shrewsbury Cathedral in front of the huge stained-glass windows by Margaret Rope that can be found there. The talk is in the afternoon, to ensure the windows can be seen in full light - and all are welcome! Dr Fitzgerald is particularly knowledgeable about the craft techniques used by Margaret Rope; such techniques were important in giving her glass its range of rich colours and its dazzling effect. There will also be a profile of Margaret Rope's place in the history of stained glass, and a discussion of Margaret Rope's religious life-journey and how that made its way into her designs
