Heaven is a Place on Earth is a research project in the field of glass studies, with special emphasis on stained glass. Using a blend of interdisciplinary expertise, we analyse both the materiality of glass and Christian intellectual development, pursuing human-centred research interests. Our main aim is to further current knowledge of the significance of stained glass in time, space, and above all the history of the imaginary. The research will thus focus on both the materiality of glass – the choice of raw materials, stained glass manufacturing technology, and the production of specific hues – and its immaterial nature, exploring aspects such as forms of light and choreographed interplay of colours.

Abstract

Heaven is a Place on Earth is a research project in the field of glass studies, with special emphasis on stained glass. Using a blend of interdisciplinary expertise, we analyse both the materiality of glass and Christian intellectual development, pursuing human-centred research interests. Our main aim is to further current knowledge of the significance of stained glass in time, space, and above all the history of the imaginary. The research will thus focus on both the materiality of glass – the choice of raw materials, stained glass manufacturing technology, and the production of specific hues – and its immaterial nature, exploring aspects such as forms of light and choreographed interplay of colours.
