Ref: N.J.Morgan: "The Medieval Painted Glass of Lincoln Cathedral." CVMA / OUP 1983

                     

Lincoln Cathedral

Some fine C13 glass still remains in the cathedral despite the toll of the ages. The 'rearrangements" of the C18 resulted in some of the glass being swapped around without much consideration of the subject matter. Recent cleaning has revealed the full beauty and importance of the collection.
