About the Book
Meditations on the Stained Glasses of Calvary is a book with a mission. Born out of the author’s desire to photograph and document the historic stained and painted glasses of Calvary Episcopal Church in Stonington, Connecticut, for posterity in book form, this gorgeous book is for all to enjoy. These glasses have become treasures and the soul of the church, and the author hopes that you will glean as much joy out of the images, history, and iconography contained within as she did while putting this book together.
Take a virtual trip to Stonington, Connecticut, and take in the photographs of the iconic stained and painted glasses. After reading about the history of each glass, you’ll likely never look at a stained glass in the same way again.
The profits of this book will be donated to the church for the care, maintenance, and preservation of the stained glasses.
