Corpus Vitrearum Medii Aevi

Stained glass is a major form of medieval art, and provides the most immediately attractive aspect of many monuments. The international Corpus Vitrearum, sponsored by the Union Académique Internationale, aims to publish illustrated catalogues of medieval window glass. As part of this Corpus, the British Academy publishes catalogues of medieval stained glass in Great Britain
Project status

Chair: Sarah Brown
Project Director: Anna Eavis

The Corpus Vitrearum Medii Aevi project publishes catalogues that include illustrations, colour plates and commentaries. The illustrations allow the study of details that are often difficult to examine in situ, and colour plates capture the full palette of the original glass. Commentaries describe the condition of the glass, technique and iconography.
