A Cloud of Witnesses

Despite the ravages of the Reformation and the English Civil War, many Rood Screen panel paintings have survived in Devon. A Cloud of Witnesses collects the best of them and presents a snapshot of the current state of these fragile masterpieces. Each image is accompanied by explanatory text outlining the stories, legends and emblems which have become associated with each Saint.
