The 72 Windows of St. Jan’s Church in Gouda

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.
