Technical Development

Stained glass is not so much a medieval craft, as a craft that was brought to perfection in the Middle Ages. (Reyntiens 1990, 8)


And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. (Genesis 1:3–4)
