York Minster: The St William Window
A beautifully illustrated study and catalogue of one of York Minster's famous and unique medieval stained glass windows. The window was painted in c.1414 to commemorate York's only saint, William Fitzherbert (Archbishop 1143-1154). His life, death and miracles are displayed in 95 large panels, all of which are described in detail and reproduced in this book. The introductory chapter forms a useful discussion of both stained glass and medieval worship.
