Looking at the various ways in which glass has been used by artists as a medium, a carrier and a subject in art. From the colourful stained glass that entered the Gothic cathedrals, an essential part of the medieval materialisation of the heavenly Jerusalem to the more recent conceptual exploration of the transubstantial argument that a glass of water can also be an oak tree, these lectures promise the usual mix of insightful scholarship and surprising  detail.
