This book draws the reader into the world of late medieval churches which were painted from roof to floor with figures, patterns, and instructive scenes, sometimes with humour as well as piety. This authoritative book gives a fresh sense of the vibrancy of medieval Welsh church interiors. There are case studies of the extraordinary painted interior recently discovered at St Cadoc’s Church, Llancarfan (near Cardiff), and the wallpaintings rescued from St Teilo’s Llandeilo Tal-y-bont, and painstakingly recreated at St Fagans open-air National Museum of History.
