Images from a Cornish Church (1)

 

St. Mawes (or St. Maudez), after whom both the town and the church of St. Mawes are named, is said to have been born in Ireland, but carried out his ministry in Brittany. He settled on the island of Ile Modez off the coast, from which he could easily have sailed across the Channel to Cornwall on a missionary journey. In the 5th century he established a chapel and holy well on the Fal Estuary, near the place where the River Fal meets the sea.

Jolis vitraux. Les explications sont très intéressantes.
Lisl: These early Saints certainly got around
This looks very modern, Elisabeth, the colours are very vibrant.
Lisl: Dedicated to Frederick Barnby, schoolmaster and priest, who died in 1958.

"The coast of Armorica"...

A wonderful scene this is, Lisl.
Lisl: Yes, Armorica
A very fine modern piece of glass Lisl

If they are going to "Armorica" (America?), they will need a bigger boat, I think. It's a fine piece of stained glass.
Lisl: Actually, Armorica is the old name for Brittany, so perhaps the small craft will make it

What a colourful and educative window. I no know that Armorica is more or less Brittany.
Lisl: We can learn from the most obscure things, Louis
Beautiful glass that is well photographed, Lisl. Did he get to America?
Lisl: He was going to Britanny, Mary - -the modern name for Armorica
Their faces and expressions seem to be quite similar, Lisl. Love seeing the seagulls included as well.
Lisl: Yes, real monkish faces, Beverly
It is a magnificent window Lisl.
Lisl: It was so striking in a very plain church
A nice bit of stained glass work.
Lisl: One of three equally lovely modern windows
