Imaging the Saints of Wales

Images of saints were plentiful in medieval Wales, and were present in all churches and private chapels. Although the vast majority were lost after the Reformation, images of saints continued to be cherished by Recusant communities and were increasingly found in churches again from the nineteenth century.

A searchable database of medieval and modern imagery of saints in Wales will be available on the site from 2023.

In the meantime, many images of saints in stained glass can be found on the searchable Stained Glass in Wales catalogue.
