Depicting St David by Martin Crampin
A new book celebrates the depictions of Wales’ patron saint, St David, from churches all over Wales. Depicting St David (Y Lolfa) by artist and historian Martin Crampin, seeks to foster a better understanding of the images of St David in all their colour and variety.
Full of beautiful pictures, Depicting St David demonstrates the wide range of ways in which the saint was depicted: as both a young and an old man; richly dressed in episcopal regalia or in a simple monastic habit; standing alone, with other saints, or in pictures of scenes from his life.
“Images of St David are found in a variety of media, although images in stained glass are by far the most numerous, and also demonstrate the most variety. Depicting St David is an introduction to the hundreds of images of David that can be found all over Wales,” says author Martin Crampin.
