This volume contains 15 articles reflecting a selection of the author's work on French and English stained glass and related works, addressing questions concerning the original setting of windows in Romanesque and Gothic buildings and of panels now in collections. These studies range from the 12th-century programme of the Abbey of Saint-Denis to the early hagiographical cycles of the Abbey of Fecamp in Normandy and dispersed early 15th-century glass from Herefordshire. Other papers relate to work on specific cathedrals or churches, including a study of the lost vault paintings of the Trinity Chapel at Canterbury Cathedral, and dispersed panels from Soissons Cathedral and Sainte Chapelle, Paris. There is also an overview of the uses made of biblical subjects in 13th-century cycles.
