The Netherlands is rightly famous for the stunning stained glass windows of the Sint Janskerk, an imposing Gothic church in Gouda, but many more examples of this fragile medium have withstood the ravages of time. This is the first book to provide a complete overview of the country’s extensive works of stained glass. In addition to showcasing the mainly post-medieval glass found in situ and dispersed glass, Zsuzsanna van Ruyven-Zeman uses excavated material, designs, and donation documents to evoke windows that are now lost.

Catalogued province by province, the material is presented in the context of political and cultural developments and demonstrates the preeminence of Holland from the mid-sixteenth through the early eighteenth century.
“This is a pioneering survey, which will long remain the indispensable point of reference for post-medieval glass-painting in the Netherlands.”—Tim Ayers, University of York
