Book DescriptionFocusing on Welsh history between the collapse of Roman domination and the 16th-century Renaissance, this text explores how economic, political, and religious forces generated many surprising and original Christian images. This volume describes how the cycles of the lives of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and the Saints provided a framework for everyday life and art. More than 450 images and artifacts, located in churches throughout Wales, are reproduced in full color, revealing a startling richness of imagery surviving in Wales from the Middle Ages.
