Description

Fredericton, New Brunswick, is home to hundreds of stained-glass windows dating from the mid-nineteenth century through to the present day. In Glorious Light, architect and art historian John Leroux directs our eyes to the way in which the multifaceted ideological and spiritual character of the city is portrayed through the illuminated richness of its stained glass.

He has worked at several award-winning architecture firms in Toronto, Atlanta and Fredericton, and also teaches at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design and St. Thomas University.
