St. Jan’s Church in Gouda is one of the few churches in the world today that still retains stained glass in all its windows. Of the seventy-two windows on display throughout the gothic church, sixty-one date back to the sixteenth century. In this gorgeous volume, R. A. Bosch provides full-page reproductions of each of the seventy-two windows as well as several high-resolution images of the windows in detail. Accompanying each image is a comprehensive explanation of the themes and historical contexts depicted in each window.
