Divine Beauty is a project that aims to conserve and interpret the remarkable, world-famous, stained-glass windows at Birmingham Cathedral.
Designed by Edward Burne-Jones and made in the workshop of William Morris, this stunning set of windows is an inspiration to all and a wonderful example of Pre-Raphaelite art in the artist’s hometown. The time for a full conservation project on the windows and their protective grilles is now due and affords the cathedral a unique moment in time to explore their significance.
We are excited about the future for this project and have lots of ideas - we are currently looking at the best ways to conserve the windows and how to arrest further deterioration. In addition, we aspire to create opportunities for learning and engagement to enable the widest audience to enjoy these wonderful treasures.
We would love to hear from you about what you think the project should contain and how you might like to get involved.
