How to Read a Medieval Stained-Glass Window :

The St Lubin Window

organized by the American Friends of Chartres

Chartres

Join us to decipher the complex layers of a medieval stained-glass window as we ‘take a deep dive’ into the window dedicated to St. Lubin in Chartres Cathedral, one of the first windows you encounter upon entering the Cathedral, it recounts the story of a sixth-century bishop of Chartres.

Together, we'll investigate the many artistic and narrative strategies artists used to convey his history. Wine—both sacred and secular—is perhaps a surprisingly crucial ingredient in the telling! Don’t miss this opportunity to gain a new lens through which to view and appreciate medieval stained-glass windows. Mary Shepard will be our guide.
