Gloucester Cathedral: Great East Window Detail

Great East Window Detail

Detail of the Great East Window (c.1350) in Gloucester Cathedral. Depicting Christ and the Virgin Mary in the center, surrounded by apostles, saints and kings, it is the size of a tennis court and was the largest in Europe when it was created. Today it vies with the Great Window of York Minster for the title of the largest stained glass window in England. The stained glass was probably imported from the Rouen area of France and is of the highest quality.
