Overview

Images of Piety: The Iconography of Traditional Religion in Late Medieval Wales by Madeleine Gray

Religious imagery was used to both stimulate what was already known and to communicate new, and often complex theological ideas. Madeleine Gray examines the imagery of medieval Wales found in parish churches, cathedrals and public areas of monastic buildings and explores the dichotomous role in which images held different levels of meaning for an audience with different literacy capabilities. She looks at images of maidenhood, motherhood, sanctity, pity, vice and virtue, and at liturgy and literacy, and the destruction of images.
