Milton in Stained Glass

Open Forum

Dr Beverley Sherry  at History House, 9 May 2019.

From the mid-nineteenth century, portraits of Milton in stained glass proliferated—in schools, libraries, universities, civic buildings, churches, even residences. Depictions of his works are much rarer and carry a rich freight of meaning because of the nature of stained glass.

A RESPONSE TO PAUL GILCHRIST’S PAPER ON ‘EVOLVING SYSTEMS’

Doug Cocks

(a shorter version was published in ISAA Review, Volume 14, number 1, 2015, p.94)

To orient readers of Paul Gilchrist’s paper I would characterise it, first, as a commentary on my own paper ‘ My Unfinished World View’ published in the ISAA Review recently and, secondly, as a vehicle for introducing various aspects of Gilchrist’s own world view, including several that are the products of his own thinking.
