The Art of Stained Glass

The Art of Stained Glass
Church Windows in Northeast Pennsylvania

by RICHARD W. ROUSSEAU, SJ
Published by University of Scranton Press 115 pages

Beautiful stained glass windows were part of a church building wave in Northeastern Pennsylvania during the boom years of coal in the latter part of the nineteenth century and the early part of the twentieth centuries. This book celebrates the religious significance, artistic beauty, and regional importance of these windows by reproducing them in full color. 

Dr. Virginia Raguin of Holy Cross College, a well known stained glass scholar, gives them context. Maureen Brennan briefly summaries key historical and informative data for each, including the many Tiffany windows. This book is a tribute to the religious and artistic vigor of an important American region in its prime.
