York Minster Stained Glass :: Shared Description

York Minster contains 128 windows that illustrate the arts and craft of glass painting over a period of 800 years.
Much of the ancient glass came from Germany and was transported across the North Sea and up the River Ouse. Mediaeval glass varied in quality and the poorer glass has suffered from erosion. A distinctive style of glass painting developed known as the York School, and was used in windows across the whole city. Windows were often given by Donors, who sometimes portrayed themselves in the window.
The windows here are often referenced by an old numbering system (normal numbers) as well as the new notation of the Corpus Vitrearum Medii Aevi which is now standard, denoted by Roman numerals prefixed by position in the church.
