Stained glass
in Manchester
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

Manchester Cathedral has major examples of stained glass from the post-war period, following loss and damage of medieval and later glass, most recently during the Second World War and after the 1996 IRA bomb. Margaret Traherne’s Fire Window memorialises the Manchester Blitz, evoking both fire and the blood of sacrifice. A later scheme by Tony Hollaway fills windows in the west end of the building. This major artistic achievement explores the journey from Creation to Revelation, with reference to the cathedral’s connections and patron saints. These works deserve wider recognition and are major examples of twentieth-century art in the city.
