High energy density multi-layer capacitors comprise inner electrodes buried within thin layers of alkali-free glass. The multi-layer glass capacitor can be fabricated by heating a plurality of capacitor layers above the annealing temperature of the glass to thermal bond the layers together. The edge margin of the buried electrodes can be selected to provide an adequate protection level from high-voltage flashover of the multi-layer glass capacitor. For example, an edge margin of 0.125'' can hold off about 10 kV in air.
