The Harrowing of Hell

The Harrowing of Hell

The Harrowing of Hell, by Karl Tamburr. Although not specifically about stained glass, this book will be of interest to readers who want to learn about the history and theology of windows depicting this scene, such as that at St Mary’s Church, Fairford, (Gloucestershire). According to apocryphal books such as the ‘Gospel of Nicodemus’, the Harrowing of Hell describes events in the three days between Christ’s Crucifixion and Resurrection, during which time he descended to Hell, debated with infernal adversaries, and liberated Adam and Eve and the ‘ancient just’ from Limbo. Karl Tamburr is Professor of English at Sweet Briar College, Virginia, USA. Boydell Press (2007), 211 pages. £50 (hardback). ISBN-13: 978-1-84384-117-3. ISBN-10: 1-84384-117-7

The glass was removed after the hospital closed some years ago. 49 pages with good colour illustrations. £10. Available via the Haslam & Whiteway website.
