‘Pro Patria Mori: Remembering Cornish War Dead in Stained Glass’ by Michael Swift

This talk explores the stained glass windows commemorating the war-dead in Cornwall from the Indian Mutiny to the Second World War. It shows how the subject-matter has changed from the 19th to 21st century, and the range of images that were used to express individual, family and community grief.

Michael Swift is an expert on stained glass in Cornwall, he is currently the adviser on stained glass to the Diocese of Truro. He is a lecturer for the WEA and for the Decorative and Fine Arts Society. After retiring as a secondary school teacher he gained an MA in Art History.
